Smart Start is Oklahoma's statewide early childhood initiative. Through a shared commitment, active collaboration and innovative leadership, Smart Start Oklahoma seeks to provide better opportunities to the children and families in our state.

Community initiatives: Responding to the needs of children and families by leveraging local support and resources to meet identified needs.

Public engagement: Educating Oklahoma on the importance of the early years.

Resource development: Committing resources at both the state and community level with increased public and private funding devoted to early childhood services.

Public policy: Improving public policies to support young children and their families.
