Come play with us!!

The Menominee County ISD is pleased to provide the Great Parent, Great Start program to families with children birth to five living in Menominee County. Our home visiting program utilizes the Parents As Teachers curriculum, customized to each families needs.  You as a caregiver are your child’s first and most important teacher.  Through our home visits, the goal is to provide each family with the information, support, and encouragement  needed to help your child develop to his/her full potential during the most crucial early years of life.


Playgroups (Great Parents, Great Start):

Free year-round playgroups open to the public! 

  • Playgroups are for children ages birth to five and their parents/care givers.  Groups are held 2-3 times per month at Spies Public Library.  During favorable weather, the group meets at Swings n’ Things Park across from the library.   Join us on Mondays from 10:30am-noon to play, socialize and eat a healthy snack.
