Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)
4 years old
The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children with factors which may place them at risk of educational failure. The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Great Start. Funding is allocated to each intermediate school district to administer the program locally. The child has to be four years old on or before September 1 in that calendar year.
Research on preschool programs and specific research on GSRP indicate that children provided with a high-quality preschool experience show significant positive developmental differences when compared to children from the same backgrounds who did not attend a high-quality preschool program. Our high scope curriculum is carried out by a lead and associate teacher who is educated, trained and monitored using a Program Quality Assessment. Children and families really enjoy our staff engagement through family nights, home visits and conferences. Graduation ceremony each spring gives each child a feeling of excitement and accomplishment for their final year of preschool.
