Ingham Great Start Collaborative Vision Statement:
“Every child ready to succeed in school and life.”
The Ingham Great Start Collaborative (GSC) serves as the multipurpose collaborative advisory board for human services agencies in the greater Lansing area. Guided by Michigan’s four early childhood outcomes, the Ingham GSC has developed four Outcome Groups (and associated working action agendas). This was informed by an extensive strategic planning process, and progress towards each outcome is reported on at each meeting (see below).
The Ingham GSC typically meets monthly at Ingham ISD Early Childhood Services (map) from 1-3:30 pm. Child care is available through the Family Growth Center (with advance reservations). At each meeting there are progress reports on the Early Childhood Action Agenda as well as committee reports from the various workgroups. There is also time set aside for updates from all participants and discussion of other issues of interest.
