Smart Start Bidders Conference 2019-2020

The mission of the Rockingham County Partnership for Children (RCPC) is to help children enter school healthy and ready to succeed. RCPC is the leader in early childhood education and services for families in Rockingham County. Because 90% of a child’s brain development happens in the first five years of life, optimizing healthy birth outcomes and the next 2,000 days is critically important. RCPC works to give young children the best possible start and a strong foundation so they can grow to be healthy and well-rounded students, employees and members of society. As the early childhood hub for Rockingham County, RCPC advocates for comprehensive and equitable services for all children and families, builds capacity for early childhood educators and meets the needs of our community.


With Smart Start funds, RCPC supports evidence-based & evidence-informed programs for children ages prenatal through five years and their families

The Partnership is currently requesting program applications for the 2019-2020 funding cycle (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020). Programs must address one of the following:
