St. Clair County parents now have one more place they can go for information, support and advice on doing the most important job in the world: raising their kids. The latest of four Great Start Family Centers in the county is now open, on the campus of the St. Clair County RESA. An open house for Marysville’s Great Start Family Center is set for Jan. 26 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Families, child care providers, home visitors and other community members are invited to see what the family center offers, such as its lending library with kid-focused materials. The Great Start Family Center is supported by the St. Clair County Regional Educational Service Agency, and a grant from St. Clair County Community Foundation written by the Great Start Collaborative. The early childhood education programs Early On and Great Parents Great Start also provided money for the center. For more information about the centers contact Director Riley Alley at 810-455-4397 The Marysville center joins others in Algonac, Capac and Port Huron. Each offers space for playgroups through the Great Parents Great Start program, as well as resources for families and providers. Free playgroups will be available to families at the Great Start Family Center every Thursday from 10 to 11 a.m. starting Feb. 2. Stacy Williams, Early On coordinator, will lead the playgroups. Playgroups are open to all families with children ages 0 to 5. They offer a range of engaging activities that work on social skills and promote early learning and development.
