Mission: The Caswell County Partnership for Children unites the community to provide families with resources and services to enable all children to reach their fullest potential.
What is the CCPFC?
The Caswell County Partnership for Children (CCPFC) is a non-profit organization serving children, youth and families in Caswell County. CCPFC administers the state Smart Start program and NC Pre-K program.
Smart Start is an early childhood initiative designed to ensure that young children enter school healthy and ready to succeed. NC Pre-K prepares 4 year old children for success in school.
CCPFC also administers other grant funded programs for children birth through age eighteen and is a central source of information about activities, programs, and resources for children and families.
Why Smart Start?
The earliest years of childhood are critical. Experiences during this time literally shape the structure of the brain. Because today's children are tomorrow's leaders, parents and workers, everyone has a stake in making sure that all children have the experiences they need to thrive. Smart Start brings together all the people involved in a young child's life-families, teachers, doctors, caregivers, social workers and many others- to ensure every child has all they need for healthy growth and development.
Smart Start’s Mission: Advance a high quality, comprehensive, accountable early childhood system that benefits each child beginning with a healthy birth.
