Buncombe Partnership for Children

WHAT THEY DO: We build a strong foundation for children’s learning and development from birth to kindergarten together with families, educators and the community. Over 90% of children’s brain development happens in their first 2,000 days. Our programs support them during this critical time. Our partnerships strengthen the whole early-childhood system in Buncombe County. We focus on early literacy, children’s health, making child care more affordable and reinforcing the quality of child care through personalized support for early educators.

Early learning is just good business. That’s why the Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce strongly supports funding early childhood education as ‘key economic infrastructure’ for workforce preparation.
