(SSFC), a Smart Start network member since 1995, is the only private organization in Forsyth County, charged by state statute, to focus on the quality and progress of the community”™s early-learning system. 

SSFC is committed to helping children birth to eight succeed, families thrive, and our community prosper, because, when we change the first few years, everything changes””for the better.

SSFC works to provide training, resources, direction, and leadership in rallying the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County community to build and sustain an affordable, equitable, high quality system of early childhood development and learning for all families.
