North Carolina’s systems for children birth-through-age-eight and their families are built on two core strengths: engaging with and learning from families, and focusing on racial equity and cultural competence. These strengths enable systems to adapt to the needs of children and their families—ensuring that the most overburdened and under-resourced families have access to the most supports, and providing a strong foundation for children’s development and learning.
