Growing Great Kids® Prenatal-36 Months Classic Version

Transformative, skill-driven curriculum 

Research-based, strength-based, and solution focused content for home visitors to use with families.

GGK® Prenatal-36 Months Classic Version

Growing Great Kids® builds Home Visitor competencies for promoting parent engagement, building relationship-based partnerships with families, cultivating the growth of secure attachment relationships, supporting family interactions that optimize growth and development, nurturing resilient families to help balance risk and protective factors, and sustain professional effectiveness.

Using the Growing Great Kids Prenatal-36 Months Curriculum and associated materials requires that Supervisors and Home Visitors attend a skill-driven Tier 1 Certification Seminar. We offer our seminars in two formats:

Classroom: Our in-person classroom certification seminar consists of four full days of engaging instruction. During the seminar, participants have many opportunities to practice using the interactive conversation guides and strength-based, solution-focused concepts. Participants also observe a live demonstration using a GGK® Curriculum module and activities.

Virtual: Just like our in-person program, our virtual certification seminar is an engaging, enriching and fun learning experience. This blended learning model consists of five days of training with 3 hours of instructor-led virtual instruction each day followed by 2 hours of independent learning time. It includes an orientation call prior to the scheduled seminar week to support participants with familiarizing themselves with the technology, to answer any general questions and to set expectations for the virtual seminar week.

Included with the certification training are:
