“There are only 2,000 days between the time a baby is born and when that child begins kindergarten. Experiences during that time have a lasting impact on later learning, health and success.”

Smart Start of Davidson County has a successful record of improving the quality of child care, parenting resources, access to health care, and other support systems for Davidson County’s families, children and child care professionals.
