Welcome to The Children’s Council of Watauga County, Inc.!
Established in 1977, the Children's Council of Watauga County, Inc. builds upon the strengths of children, families, and educators by investing resources, information, and training toward promoting the future health and success of our greatest community asset: Our Children. All of the programs, from prenatal to kindergarten, concentrate on child development to prepare children to be ready to succeed in school. Through family support, early literacy programs, child care technical assistance and professional development, and community outreach and collaboration we focus on the importance of each child. We are committed to our vision of a community where every child has the support to live a healthy, happy life. Early education matters to everyone!
We are the North Carolina Smart Start Partnership for Watauga County; Smart Start is the state-funded initiative that supports child care related health and family support services on behalf of children ages 0-5. It's goal is that all children will start school healthy and ready to learn.
This is a broad and ambitious objective, but the genius of Smart Start is that it recognizes different communities will need to address this objective in different ways. It, therefore, allows substantial local control in deciding what services to fund and how to provide them. Due to state budget cuts and a changing economic climate, we rely heavily on community support to be able to offer early childhood programs, services, and resources in the high country. Please consider getting involved or making a financial contribution to support our efforts! Become a financial supporter or community partner to ensure that all families and children are supported during this important time in their lives! All contributors will be recognized in all of our future outreach materials!
The Children's Council of Watauga County, Inc. is a 501c3 organization and your donation is tax deductable.
