The Delta Schoolcraft Great Start Collaborative

The first five years of a child's life are a time of great opportunity. Research tells us that the quality early learning experiences and environments directly impact children's success in school and beyond. Well-prepared children strengthen the community socially, emotionally and economically. Today's children are tomorrow's workers, parents and leaders. Investing in our future starts with giving our children a "Great Start".

The Delta Schoolcraft Great Start Collaborative (DSGSC) is a partnership of community leaders, health care professionals, human service agencies, charitable and faith-based organizations, educators and parents. The DSGSC is dedicated to establishing and maintaining a comprehensive early childhood system. The goal of the Collaborative is to provide a network of support and resources for children and their families to help ensure children enter kindergarten ready and eager to learn.
