Complete Lifecycle Support

Flexible professional development options help you to get the most from your home visits.

Training now and for the life of your program certification. 

Post Certification Support

Mastering the competencies to produce successful outcomes requires training, practice and on-going coaching. Great Kids™ offers competency development seminars for practitioners partnering with families to strengthen their family relationships and to optimize the development and health outcomes for their children.

Our job-specific certifications focus on building staff skills for implementing effective parenting and early childhood programs at all program levels. Program Supervisors and Managers are oriented to a wide variety of field-tested, efficient supervisory/management systems and instruments for implementing an effective home visiting program.

 

Tier 2 Next Generation for Home Visitors

At Great Kids we believe that participation in the Tier 1 Certification seminar is only one piece of the learning process. Research indicates that learning that occurs during a workshop is only transferred to job skills when there is additional support and accountability. This Growing Great Kids® Staff Development program is designed to continue to support staff in the learning process as they begin implementation of the curriculum. Completion of this Tier 2 Certification will help anchor the Home Visitor’s ability to use the full curriculum materials in an intentional and informed manner that will result in optimizing outcomes for children and families.

Tier 2 Next Generation for Supervisors

Through this Professional Development program, supervisors have access to the same content and resources as their home visiting staff to support implementation of the curriculum. Supervisors complete this program either concurrently with their staff of prior to staff completing. This ensures that supervisors are adequately prepared to discuss each competency unit and to practice with staff as they use their skills. Reviewing unit assignments and reflections with home visiting staff is critical to successful completion.

RE-MAP Supervision

Great Kids™ has developed and offers training in a supervisory model, RE-MAP Supervision, that incorporates reflective, clinical and administrative elements. It aims to build home visitor skills while creating a strength-based, results-driven work environment.

 

Testimonials

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”

Beth W. 

Home Visitor, Saskatchewan

“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.”
