Beginning prenatally, Growing Great Kids is a comprehensive curriculum that supports the development of nurturing and empathetic parent-child relationships for 0 to 3 year olds. It does so by focusing on child development and health, provision of care, parenting concerns and dynamics of parent-child and family relationships.
For Every 3 Months of the Child's Development, There are 6 Modules Addressing:
Each of these modules is designed to support learning by anchoring the information in activities and interactive discussions.
An exciting most practical addition, specifically designed for home visitors, parent coaches, and child caregivers, is the Growing Great Families manual with modules focused on family dynamics and supporting growth within the family system.
Growing Great Kids is written to be inclusive of all family members and all individuals involved in raising a child. The curriculum can be easily adapted to meet the cultural needs of your families and communities.
The purpose of this curriculum is to integrate learning into parental practices and behaviors. This curriculum can be used either during home visits or with parent groups, depending upon family dynamics or group size. Each module will take 1 to 3 visits/sessions to complete.
The curriculum includes handouts for parents, unit certificates of completion for parents and documentation records specific to each module.
Growing Great Kids Prenatal - 36 months Curriculum is available in both English and Spanish.

“I love the concept of E-Parenting and how it teaches parents to be compassionate with their children. Feeling words are very important and I had never known how to communicate that to parents or motivate them to use them. What an awesome training! Great trainer with positive energy. I am leaving feeling jazzed and confident.”
