Great Kids International

The future of our world community depends on all of us. Children must have the opportunity to reach their optimal growth and development in all childhood domains. Families must be supported to develop the Protective Factors, giving their family resiliency while receiving supportive guidance on child development and nurturing care. Research has established the relationship between parenting/caregiving practices, early learning experiences, and positive outcomes for children.

It is only with responsive care and support for their healthy development that children will grow into resourceful, compassionate individuals who will contribute positively to our global community as adults. 


Great Kids (GK) is an international non-profit training, curricula, and consulting organization specializing in improving the quality of care and developmental stimulation infants and young children receive from their parents and other caregivers.

During the past 20 years, GK has developed training programs and curricula focused on growing nurturing relationships between parents/caregivers and young children that support their early development. 

Our curricula and training programs have been successfully contextualized for use in developing countries. By mentoring a team of trainers and project officers in the use of our Growing Great Kids curricula and staff development programs, our goal is to build in-country capacity and reliance on local professionals by giving them the tools to implement and replicate the Growing Great Kids programs.
