Great Start Collaborative

The St. Clair County Great Start Collaborative is a partnership of parents, child care providers, service providers, businesses and other community leaders who are committed to giving every child in St. Clair County a great start in life.

Great Start

Great Start is Michigan's nationally recognized state-wide initiative to foster school readiness and life success for young children. Great Start recognizes that education begins at birth and that it is important to build an early childhood system in the spirit of collaboration and with common goals.

Great Start Collaborative

The St. Clair County Great Start Collaborative was created in 2007 to partner with parents, local agencies, businesses, child care providers, service providers and other community leaders who all share an interest in the quality of early childhood in St. Clair County. The GSC works together to improve child outcomes in all five of the key areas of a child's life: physical health, social & emotional health, parenting leadership, family support and early care and education.

Meetings

Great Start Collaborative meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month from 12-2 p.m. at St. Clair County RESA.
