Great Parents, Great Start!
READY kits are distributed to families for infants, one-year olds, two-year olds, and three-year olds. These kits, for the most intense period of brain growth, are designed to provide parents with information on child development and methods to enhance parent-child interaction that promote social and emotional development, physical development, and age-appropriate language, mathematics, and early reading skills. The kits include a book, music CD, parent DVD, developmental milestones, activity cards, and items to promote access to needed community services. The kits are distributed by NC RESA and collaborating agencies (District Health Department #10, Family Health Care, and Community Mental Health). Infant kits also distributed to parents of children born at Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial and at the NC RESA booth at the July Baby Food Festival in Fremont. These kits are provided through the Michigan Department of Education Great Parents Great Start program and through the generosity of The Gerber Foundation.
