The First 2,000 Days
We invest in the First 2,000 Days of a child’s life — in children ages 0-5 and their families by partnering with local organizations to provide programs that:
There are 2,000 days between birth and kindergarten. The majority of brain development happens during this time, forming the foundation for all future learning.
We are a Smart Start Partnership
Smart Start was created in 1993 as an innovative solution to a problem: Children were coming to school unprepared to learn.
The power of Smart Start is that it delivers outcomes by giving communities local control to determine the best approach to achieving them.
Over the next ten years, Madison County Partnership for Children and Families will continually seek to better understand the needs of resident families with young children and increase awareness of the importance of early childhood development to ensure that all children benefit from credible early-childhood education.
