Complete Lifecycle Support

Flexible professional development options help you 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.

Preschool Tier 2 Certification 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.

RE-MAP for 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.
