Western Resource Center

The Western Resource Center loves to partner.  We partner with trainers, libraries, local Intermediate School Districts, child care programs, providers and families.  We support community efforts that prepare children for school and life.  If you have ideas on how we can work smarter, better and faster together, please contact our Resource Center Director, Sue Toman at 616-396-2301.  
A few partners that share our vision for children are:
  • Local Great Start Collaboratives - working to build an early childhood system in Michigan.
  • Local Great Start Parent Coalitions - supporting parents and giving them voice.   
  • Local Libraries
  • Ready for School - works in the Holland, Zeeland and Hamilton areas to ensure children are ready for school.
  • Other partners are listed on the community resource page.

If you are interested in the Great Start Collaboratives or Great Start Parent Coalitions, you may find one in your area.
