The Next Generation Curriculum Series

A flexible, yet targeted curriculum series that meets the needs of each of your program families.

Continuity in service delivery through progressively introducing parents to pertinent information and building their parenting and family life skills.

GGK® Next Generation Prenatal-36 Months Curriculum Series

Growing Great Kids® Next Generation is a skill-driven Curriculum for Home Visitors and their Supervisors.

The full GGK Next Generation Curriculum Series includes a comprehensive parenting, attachment, health/wellness, child development, and family strengthening curriculum. The primary focus of the curriculum is on fostering the growth of secure attachment relationships and developmentally enriched, empathic parenting that supports families to reduce their stress and build protective buffers for their children.

The conversation guide provided for each home visit, motivates parents to grow their parenting skills and strengthen family foundations within the context of their values and what they want for their child. The result of this is competent, nurturing parents who have hope and confidence in how they shape their child’s future.
