Research shows that funding birth to five programs is the best way to maximize taxpayers' investments in education. Despite difficult economic conditions during the 2009-2010 fiscal year, and uncertainty in the lives of area families, Wake County SmartStart has worked diligently to support quality early child care services to families and children in the most need.
