Great Start Readiness Program

Funded by Michigan Department of Education

There are approximately 2,000 days from when a child is born to the first day of Kindergarten.  As a parent you can help your child start Kindergarten ready to succeed by enrolling in GSRP at Summer Preschool Early Learning Center.

Michigan’s Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) was established in 1985 to provide high quality preschool education to four-year olds.  GSRP is based on income and other factors that may place them at risk of educational failure.  Funding is allocated to intermediate school district to administer the program locally.  Summer preschool funding is administered by Wayne RESA Intermediate School District at no cost to parents.  A sliding scale based fee may be required for those families not meeting funding eligibility. 

The class meets Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Wrap around service is available for those needing care after 3:30 p.m.  Our teachers are trained and credentialed. Each day includes healthy meals, snacks and lots of fun. 

We utilize the HighScope Curriculum, whose foundation is built on active learning across developmental domains.  Categories include: 

  

  • Approaches to learning 

  • Social & emotional development 

  • Creative arts 

  • Language, literacy, & communication 

  • Mathematics 

  • Science & technology 

  • Social studies 

  • Physical development & health  

 

Teachers and students are active partners in shaping the educational experience.  This partnership allows children the opportunity to find out how the world works through their direct experience with people, objects, materials, events, and ideas.  The curriculum emphasizes adult-child interaction, a carefully designed learning environment, and a plan-do-review process.  This process strengthens initiative, self-reliance, supports critical thinking and language development in children.  Our teachers observe and record activities while supporting each child’s individual learning process.
