Smart Start 'achieving goals,' UNC center report indicates

rt health intervention were "significantly more likely to have a regular source of health care and to have had DPT and polio vaccines than children who had not participated in Smart Start," Bryant said.

Smart Start is helping meet the needs of families by helping centers and family child-care homes serve more children, including adding spaces for special age groups, and helping subsidize the cost of child care in licensed centers and family child-care homes, she said. The number of new Smart Start-funded child care spaces rose from about 1,300 in 1996 to almost 9,000 in 2001.

"Smart Start is more than the sum of its parts," Bryant said. "A recent study showed how central the individual partnerships have become in their local service systems. The more central they became, the more improved was the service system. Gaps in services were reduced, duplication of services was reduced and providers were more aware of other resources that could be offered to families. The local Smart Start partnership was perceived to have played a key role in these improvements."
