The first five years in a child’s life are crucial to future success in school and in life. It is vital that children have opportunities for positive early learning experiences, safe, nurturing relationships and quality early learning environments that affect their growth and healthy development.
These early years create the foundation for a lifetime of active learning and will have a direct impact on future capabilities as a student, a worker, a citizen, a spouse, and a parent. How well these foundations are constructed is a shared responsibility of communities, families and schools.
Smart Start South Central is committed to improving the quality of life for our youngest citizens. We bring people and resources together to create lasting, positive change for our young children.
