Marquette-Alger Great Start Collaborative

 The Marquette-Alger Great Start Collaborative is a network of educators, agencies, early childhood professionals, community leaders, and parents invested in quality early childhood and family programming, services, and supports. Our vision for our community is that all children are born healthy; are developmentally on track; ready to succeed at the time of school entry; and reading proficiently by third grade.

In order to achieve these goals, we meet quarterly and members also select one of four workgroups to be actively engaged in achieving our vision. Our four workgroups are; Physical Health, Social-Emotional Health/CAN council, School Readiness, and Literacy.
