Welcome to the NC's Early Care and Education Action Center!
As North Carolinians, we are proud of our state’s record of innovation and excellence in advancing high quality early care and education for all young children. In fact, NC serves as a model across the country for many of its early childhood initiatives – including Smart Start, NC PreK, T.E.A.C.H. and Star-rated child care licensing. These programs have been repeatedly recognized nationwide as being well designed and implemented and producing positive gains for our young children.
