GREAT START MAKES A DIFFERENCE
The Dickinson Iron Great Start Collaborative and Parent Coalitions have worked together to build and reform the local early childhood system to achieve better outcomes for young children and their families. For Great Start to serve families, the entire community must come together forming valued partnerships designed to benefit children and parents. Community partnerships are the key to insuring the mission and vision for future community leaders, our children! The Dickinson Iron Great Start motto makes this important priority statement: IT IS ALL ABOUT THE CHILDREN!
WE believe only together can we create communities that are great places to raise children. WE are honored and proud to be Great Start Leaders! WE promise to collaborate, value your ideas and always have FUN being with YOU! Thanks big time - Barb and Jonathan
