Did you know what the collective dream of the
Sanilac Great Start Collaborative is?
|You know you want your 3 year old to start their education right, but you're worried about the cost. Great Start Sanilac can help! We offer preschool scholarships for tuition costs for qualifying families. Sanilac County families that are not participating in Head Start or Great Start Readiness Programs may apply and could receive between 20-50% of their child's tuition costs paid for. For more information or an application please contact Angelica Weirmier at 810-648-2200 ext 4109 or Jennifer McClain at 810-648-2200 ext 4139.

GREAT START PARENTS

We provide child care and a light meal; gas reimbursement is available if transportation is hard for you! Come meet with other parents and help make a difference in your child's life!

Currently in Michigan, there are nearly 200,000 kids under age 6 living in poverty, 50,000 Michigan babies born every year on Medicaid, 40,000 at-risk preschoolers unable to access quality early education because of budget cuts, and the 16,000 students who will drop out before graduating this spring. If you find any of these issues upsetting, join the Great Start Collaborative Sanilac in our efforts to improve the lives of our youngest residents, or contact your local legislator directly and tell them you expect their support for early childhood programs and services. firstname.lastname@example.org or PaulMuxlow@house.mi.gov
