Great Start Events Canceled – Alt. Resources During Covid-19 Shutdown

Good Morning.

I hope that each of you are safe and healthy.

These past two weeks have certainly seen a different way of

life for most everyone and with new information being released

almost daily, there will certainly be additional changes.

As you know, activities and events of every kind have been canceled.

So for April, there will not be a Great Start Calendar of Activities.

Instead, we will be posting information and home activity ideas on Facebook. 

If you are not already connected to one or more of our pages, I would encourage you to like and follow the page(s) that best fit for your family.

Great Start Lapeer – Facebook    This our original page and shares information that applies to a broad audience.

Great Start North Branch & Deerfield  In addition to information shared on the original page, this page will have information that is specific to the North Branch and Deerfield communities.  

Great Start Almont & Dryden     In addition to information shared on the original page, this page will have information that is specific to the Almont and Dryden communities. 

Finally, are you an ESSENTIAL WORKER or do you know an ESSENTIAL WORKER with children age 12 or younger? If  you are an essential worker, as defined in the Governor’s Executive Order 2020 16, and in need of child care, please complete the survey to be contacted about available child care (this is not free care, licensed child care costs will apply):   Essential Worker In Need of Child Care Survey
