Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)
GSRP provides preschool programming for four-year-old children who may be “at risk” of school failure. NEMCSA provides this programming through contracted agreements with some school districts within their service area. There is no cost to families, but enrolled children must qualify for the program. Services include strong parent involvement and education components as well as preschool education.
Program is funded by the Michigan Department of Education.
