What is the Caswell County Partnership for Children?
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.
Smart Start is an early childhood initiative designed to ensure that young children enter school healthy and ready to succeed.
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.
The Caswell County Partnership for Children brings together families, educators, churches, businesses, government, and other community resources to provide children and their families the services and support to assure that all children will be healthy and able to reach their fullest potential.
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.
