Welcome to Calhoun Great Start Collaborative!
The Calhoun Great Start Collaborative is a coordinated group of business, philanthropic and faith based organizations, educators, community members, parents and family members that all share the philosophy that it takes our whole community, working together, to ensure every child in Calhoun County has a GREAT START in their lives!
During the first 2,000 days between birth and their first day of kindergarten, 90% of a child's brain is developed. Brain research shows us how the nutrition, medical care, nurturing and quality early learning experiences children receive during this critical period literally shapes the way their brains will function!
Through the work of the Calhoun PARENT COALITION , EARLY CHILDHOOD CONNECTIONS, GREAT START READY TEAMS, and the collaborative efforts of our Great Start COMMUNITY PARTNERS, our goal is to have every child in Calhoun County safe, healthy, prepared, and eager to succeed in school and life, becoming contributing and productive members of our community!
Feel free to explore our website and learn about the exciting ways our Community is working together to ensure that the children of our county are safe, happy, and ready to succeed in school and in life!
