Growing Great Kids (GGK) Home Visitation Program: Your child is born to learn. In the first few years, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in life. You are your child’s first and most important teacher, but being a parent can be hard work. The GGK program can help you capture the everyday teachable moments with specific when, what, how and why advice to maximize your child’s early brain, motor, social and emotional development. This nationally acclaimed, research based, education and support program is offered free of charge to interested families with children ages prenatal to 3 years. GGK offers personal visits, with one of our certified GGK Parent Educators, customized for the needs of your family. Visits can be held at your home, NCFR or a community location.
