Bright Start TN
A promising start for Chattanooga/Hamilton County
Chattanooga 2.0, the cradle-to-career collaborative of Chattanooga-Hamilton County, is coordinating the Bright Start TN Chattanooga/Hamilton County partnership. Bright Start TN builds on the foundational work that has already taken place as part of Chattanooga 2.0’s Early Matters – Hamilton County’s early childhood strategy action team that has been working to create a coordinated early childhood system for the last five years.

“We are proud to be a partner in the work to better equip children with the skills to be successful in school and life. In Hamilton County Schools, we aim for all children to thrive and experience a future without limits. We know this starts before students enter kindergarten. It takes everyone in the community working together to support early childhood development. We appreciate the efforts of the Bright Start TN Network to coordinate and align child-serving organizations.”
