Our Great Parents, Great Start (GPGS) program operates in partnership with Wayne County Regional Educational Service Agency (Wayne RESA).
To learn about the early learning resources available in your community through Great Start, please visit Great Start Connect. This site provides information about quality child, early learning programs, training opportunities, and other resources to support families and young children.
We offer home visits to families with factors in the home that place their children at risk for school failure. Families with a child newborn to age four are eligible for up to seven GPGS home visits if they qualify. Qualifying requirements include social, financial, educational, medical, psychological, English as a Second language, and family-size factors. To learn more about eligibility, please contact us.
Regular developmental screening in the early years makes sure that children are on track, and helps identify areas where additional support may be needed. Families with children between the ages of 2 months and 5 years of age residing in Wayne County can complete a FREE Ages and Stages (ASQ-3) developmental screening. It only takes a few minutes to complete and a developmental screening specialist will follow up with an individualized email to offer supports and resources.
