Great Start Parent Coalition
The St. Clair County Great Start Parent Coalition is a group of parents working together to ensure a great start for St. Clair County's children.
The Parent Coalition works to raise awareness and support for early childhood programming in the community.
They give parents who are passionate about early childhood issues a way to volunteer in their own communities.
The Parent Coalition also gives parents a voice in shaping programs and services used by young children and their families in St. Clair County, and they work to support the work of the Great Start Collaborative.
Family Friendly Business Award
The St. Clair County Great Start Collaborative recognizes county businesses, agencies, and organizations that are “family-friendly.” A family-friendly business encourages and supports children and families through its business practices. An example of this may be a doctor’s office that provides an area with books or activities for waiting children or a restaurant that offers child-friendly menus, including healthy options.
