Alamance Partnership for Children
All children arrive at school happy, healthy, and ready for success in school and life
The Partnership shapes opinion and mobilizes resources to support Alamance County families in creating and sustaining nurturing environments for their children.
What is the Alamance Partnership for Children?
The Alamance Partnership for Children is a non-profit organization serving children and families in Alamance County. The Partnership administers Smart Start and NC Pre-Kindergarten funds, an early childhood initiative designed to ensure that young children enter school healthy and ready to succeed.
Why Smart Start?
The earliest years of childhood are critical. Experiences during this time literally shape the structure of the brain. Because today's children are tomorrow's leaders, parents and workers, everyone has a stake in making sure that all children have the experiences they need to thrive. Smart Start brings together all the people involved in a young child's life-families, teachers, doctors, caregivers, social workers and many others- to ensure every child has all they need for healthy growth and development.
