Creating a collaborative early childhood system that works together to ensure every child has a great start in life.

The first five years of a child’s life are a time of great opportunity. Research tells us that 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 means giving our children a “Great Start.”

The Copper Country Great Start Collaborative (CCGSC) is a partnership of community leaders, healthcare professionals, human services agencies, charitable and faith-based organizations, educators, and parents. The CCGSC is dedicated to establishing and maintaining a comprehensive early childhood system.
