See the Bright Beginnings Map

This map shows the location of public recreation centers, libraries, and schools in relation to the quality of life status of Charlotte neighborhoods, with particular emphasis on facilities that have been closed or now have reduced hours.  It was created by the UNC Charlotte Urban Institute, in collaboration with Council for Children's Rights, to determine which neighborhoods would be most affected by the hour reductions and closures of public facilities.  The map also shows schools that offer Bright Beginnings, a pre-kindergarten program that provides a child-centered, literacy-focused environment to ensure that all children in the community enter kindergarten ready to learn.
