Parenting Leadership

GOAL: Families support and guide the early learning of their children ages 0-5.


All parents need the support of good community systems to help themselves help their children.  Across Michigan, parents of young children lack easy access to information and resources that will help them be their child's first and most important teacher.

Parenting Leadership in the Great Start System is a continuum of services and supports ranging from parent education for parents in the critical role they play in the healthy development of their infants and other young children, to parents as leaders who advocate for their own children as well as the needs of other young children.
