Programs

Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Parents as Teachers

Parents as Teachers closes the achievement gap for low income or at-risk children, ages birth to five, providing benefits that can be seen from kindergarten through 3rd grade, which predicts high school graduation.

Category

Population(s) Served

Infants/Babies (under age 5)

Program 2

Imagination Library & Early Childhood Resource Center

Imagination Library and the Early Childhood Resource Center provide books and activities that encourage parents to talk with, read to, and play with their children, which stimulates and promotes brain development and learning. Children whose parents read to or participate in activities with them on a regular basis are far less likely to enter kindergarten socially or academically delayed.

Population(s) Served

Infants/Babies (under age 5)

Program 3

Strengthening the Foundations of Quality

Strengthening the Foundations of Quality works with child care program directors to increase the quality of child care and education provided to young children, typically 9-10 hours a day, while parents work.  Unlike public schools for kindergarten-12th grade, programs for children from birth to five depend on parent fees, which must be affordable for working parents. Parent fees are too low to pay for good teacher salaries and benefits, teacher training, teacher planning time for curriculum planning and preparation, teacher supervision, and materials and equipment needed for daily activities. So Smart Start provides information, training, consultation and technical assistance, and some wage supplements, to help programs achieve 4- and 5- star NC licenses.
