"Bringing people and organizations together to work with and for parents and children in order to maximize school readiness."

 The mission of the Chowan/Perquimans Smart Start Partnership, as a regional, community-based organization, is to facilitate collaboration and coordination of comprehensive family support services for all children to maximize school preparedness and to ultimately develop future productive citizens.


We at the Chowan/Perquimans Smart Start Partnership are committed to serving young children, families, child care providers and the community.


What is Smart Start All About? Smart Start is a public/private early childhood initiative to help ALL NC children enter school healthy and ready to succeed. Smart Start services are targeted for children 0-5 years and their families; the goal is to make sure child care is of high quality and affordable.  Smart Start also strives to make child care accessible to those who need it. Providing referrals to child care centers or homes are also included in Smart Start activities.
