What home visitors and parents are saying about Great Kids.

“The Growing Great Kids curriculum means that I have the opportunity of sharing such valuable information and lots of information with families that I serve. Information that has been researched and is evidence based, but not only that, information that is very supporting and encouraging in understanding parenting. Understanding the importance of parent-child interaction, bonding and attachment, understanding in what your child developmental milestones are and having them reach those milestones.”
