GRSP stands for Great Start to Readiness Program.
GRSP is a state funded free preschool program for qualifying 4-year old's. It is for families who have different factors that could affect their child later in life. GSRP is an opportunity for all children to get a jumpstart on learning, and it prepares them for school.
Your child must be 4 years old by September 1st. If we do not have enough children enrolled, then we can start enrolling children who turn 4 by December 1st.
If you scroll down, there is a list of different eligibility factors. If you're still unsure about qualifying, it does not hurt to fill out an application anyways.
GRSP coincides with a regular public-school schedule. This means there are holiday breaks, summer break, and no school every Friday. Our GRSP will operate from 8:30-3:30 Monday - Thursday.
We will be offering care for before school, after school, Fridays, school breaks, and holidays. It is important to note that this is not funded by the state, so the non-school dates and times will be tuition you have to pay for. DHS can be used for the days GRSP is not operating.
All meals, snacks, and school supplies except for backpacks are provided. You will be responsible to bring naptime supplies, a water bottle, and extra clothing in case of spills or an accident.
