What is the Alamance Partnership for Children?
The Alamance Partnership for Children is a non-profit organization serving young children and families in Alamance County. We are an early childhood initiative designed to ensure that young children enter school healthy and ready to succeed. The Partnership is the local administrator for Smart Start and NC Pre-Kindergarten funds.
Why Smart Start?
The earliest years of childhood are critical. Experiences during this time shape the structure of the brain. Because today's children are tomorrow's leaders, everyone has a stake in making sure that all children have the experiences they need to thrive. Smart Start brings together 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.
