At Wake County SmartStart, we are working to ensure that Wake County children, birth to 5, are successful in school and in life. As a community we only have 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when that child shows for the first day of kindergarten. We believe early childhood investments are essential to our future prosperity and invite you to join us in our mission and work. Together we can make a tremendous impact!
