Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) (4 Year Olds)

Enrollment is now open for 4-year-olds for the 2023-24 school year in the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP). GSRP is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children who fall below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).  The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Great Start. The full-day program meets Monday thru Thursday.  Children must have turned 4 by September 1, 2023, but no later than December 1, 2023.

An enriching and engaging curriculum provides for learning experiences in the areas of social-emotional development, math and literacy, fine and gross motor skill development, science and art experiences. There is a rest time each day and a nutritious breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided daily. Class size maximum is 16 students with a Lead and Associate Teacher for a ratio of 1:8. This program is offered at no-cost to qualifying families.

Early Childhood Special Education

Michigan Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) services include special instruction and related services provided to young children, ages three through five, who qualify under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA, Part B, Section 619).

Through its 56 intermediate school districts (ISDs) Michigan's ECSE program ensures the provision of a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to all eligible children at no cost to their families, and in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). LRE means that young children with disabilities should receive services in typical community-based early childhood settings and programs whenever possible, and only go to more restrictive or specialized settings when their individual needs require it.
