Great Start Collaborative

Mission

All children in Shiawassee County will be safe, healthy, and eager to succeed in school and in life. 

Michigan Early Childhood Outcomes

 Children are born healthy.

Children are healthy, thriving, and developmentally on track from birth to third grade.

 Children are developmentally ready to succeed in school at time of school entry.

 Children are prepared to succeed in fourth grade and beyond by reading proficiently by the end of third grade.

The Great Start Collaborative Team

Continues the work of creating a seamless Early Childhood System that includes all local agencies and organizations, including private and public services agencies, faith based organizations, businesses, and parents.  

* Great Start Collaborative materials are funded through a grant provided by the Michigan Department of Lifelong Education, Advancement, and Potential.
