We plan to ensure that every Bladen County child, birth to five years old, has an equal and fair opportunity for success.

Bladen Smart Start understands and appreciates the challenges of rearing a healthy child, especially in a world that is growing increasingly complex.

Bladen Smart Start offers a variety of educational programs.

Bladen Smart Start is committed to helping families do their best. To meet the diverse needs of Bladen County's families, Family Support programs promote school readiness by increasing the stability and involvement of parents in their children’s lives.

Bladen Smart Start works with many different local agencies who provide services to children and families and works to identify needed programs and services as well as resources to meet those needs.
