Training


As with any new job, mastering the competencies to produce successful outcomes requires training, practice and on-going coaching. Great Kids, Inc. can support you in evolving the skills of your program staff. We offer a wide range of quality trainings and a comprehensive parent-child and family support curriculum that are tailored to meet the specific needs of programs working with parents of children prenatally - age 5 in home visiting, parent groups and center based settings.

A common thread in all of our seminars is the focus on supporting parents in developing positive attachment relationships with their infants and toddlers along with enhancing family self-sufficiency.
