Growing Great Kids® Prenatal-36 Months
Our latest effort to support the work of Home Visiting is our Growing Great Kids® Next Generation (GGK®) Curriculum materials. This newest version of the Growing Great Kids® Curriculum includes many new features as well as several enhancements.
Overall, the one thing that defines Next Generation is an enhanced ability to individualize each family’s experience based on their wants and needs and those of their child. This level of engagement with families allows them to have voice and choice in the planning of home visits.
Home visiting cannot be administered uniformly, so Next Generation is much more flexible and targeted. By differentiating what works, for whom, and in what contexts, GGK Next Generation supports programs as they work to meet the needs of each program family.

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.
What home visitors and parents are saying about Great Kids.
“Thanks! I am enjoying doing the home visits so much more now. I find the daily-do’s (parenting skills) sooo much easier to incorporate and I am seeing that look on the parents’ faces….you know, that look that shows light bulbs going off in their heads and that they feel like they really can do this parenting thing. I love it! Thanks again……LOVED the training! Happy Spring”

“I have gone through so much training, at first I did not want to attend the Growing Great Kids Training…and I am so glad I did! I have been working in my program for 2 years and GGK has made my job exciting and productive. Parents just love the curriculum! They are now doing the activities and the GGK Daily Do’s (parenting interactions) with their children. And, I have trouble getting out the door at the end of the visit because the parents still want to talk.”
