What supervisors, home visitors, and parents are saying about Great Kids.
"I was looking for a foundational training for my home visitors that was comprehensive and focused on practical application. I needed something that would meet the needs of home visitors with different levels of education. This seminar was just the best!"
"I just wanted to let you know GGK is going great here. I am working with a couple who is just soaking it up! Their confidence as parents has increased, and I’ve only been with them for about 2 months now! They are very receptive to the curriculum, and that helps make my job so much easier, and so much more fun and productive.”
