Literacy is one of Smart Start of Mecklenburg County’s focus areas, to ensure children are prepared for kindergarten.

We measure success by the positive impact we make on the families and community we serve. Over the past school year, we are encouraged to see families of 1,091 children enrolled in Ready4K, a free texting service for families with children ages 0- 5 in Mecklenburg County. You can make an impact by signing up or sharing this opportunity with your friends, families, and colleagues.
