Parents are their children’s first—and most influential—teachers! And they play an active role in the work of First Steps and the Great Start Collaborative of Kent County.
The Great Start Parent Coalition is made up of committed parents from all over the county who want to ensure a GREAT START for their own children and all children in the community.
The Coalition’s mission is to increase parents’ skills, knowledge, and participation in early childhood planning and decision making in the community.
The Coalition is always looking for new members. It is open to any parent or caregiver of children under the age of 12 in Kent County. Please join us!
Need more information about the Great Start Parent Coalition? Contact Parent Liaisons: Paula Brown, Leslie Hawkins or Karen Lay at 616-632-1007.
