Carteret Smart Start is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to serving children birth through age 5. Our programs are funded through Smart Start, The Carteret Community Foundation and the generous support of local donors. We are pleased to provide and/or fund many programs that promote Smart Start’s mission of helping all children in NC enter school healthy, motivated and ready to succeed.
Smart Start and Dolly Parton Imagination Library are working together to get books into the hands of north Carolina’s youngest children. Learn more, check eligibility and sign your child up for FREE.
North Carolina and Carteret Smart Start join others to “inspire our children to dream more, learn more, care more and be more.”
