What We Do
Smart Start of Mecklenburg County has the sole mission of ensuring that every child in our county enters kindergarten healthy and ready to learn. Smart Start provides funding for programs in health, early childhood education, and family support for children ages birth to 5.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
While Smart Start of Mecklenburg County is not directly impacted by current events, childcare centers we support are. Our Child Care Provider COVID-19 Relief Fund has been created to help Charlotte’s child care community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. These funds will provide childcare centers the resources to purchase supplies needed to either re-open or remain open, allowing essential workers to keep working.
