Great Start Readiness Program: Michigan's Nationally Recognized Pre-K Program

GSRP Program Philosophy

The Great Start Readiness Program believes that each child is unique, each contributing their own special set of interests, needs, and abilities. We strive to meet each child’s emotional, social, intellectual, and physical development. We feel children learn best in a caring and creative learning environment. Patience, sharing, responsibility, and teamwork are practiced through participating in the daily routine of GSRP.
