Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)
GSRP is tuition-free to families that qualify and are accepted into the program. A child in the GSRP program will have experiences in initiative, social relations, creative representation, music, movement, language and literacy, and hands-on mathematics.
Children meet for full-day sessions Monday through Thursday during the program year (September – May). The GSRP program is located in our Great Lakes, Lakewood and Pine Creek Elementary Schools. Transportation is not provided.
You may want to consider sending your child to GSRP if:
- Your child is 4 by September 1, 2021
- Your child resides in Ottawa County
- Your family meets income qualifications determined by the State of Michigan
To determine if your child qualifies, complete an online application through Help Me Grow Ottawa. You must upload your proof of income when completing the online application. For step-by-step directions, please see the links below.
For more information regarding GSRP, please contact Jeri Page, at (616) 786-2036.
