Grant programs

Grant programs are available for families who meet income eligibility requirements. GSRP, the free preschool for children who are four years old by September 1, funded by the Michigan Department of Education, continues to enroll children. Head Start,  a federal program for three and four year old children, also continues to enroll.  Families applying for these programs will need to provide documentation of eligibility, participate in an intake interview, and comply with grant rules.  Both grant programs will schedule 2 home visits and 2 conferences per year.

Head Start 

Head Start - Families must meet federal income guidelines (100% federal poverty level.) Children may be enrolled whose families are over income when there are additional risk factors. Ten percent of our slots for children are reserved for children with diagnosed disabilities.

The Great Start Readiness Program

The Great Start Readiness Program is funded by the State of Michigan. Children who are 4 years old, and won't be 5 years old by September 1, 2020, may be eligible for this program. Eligibility is determined by income and other factors such as developmental delays or difficult family situations. Family's income for free preschool would meet up to 250% on the guideline link below. 

Tuition Programs

Tuition Programs serve all other families.  Parents choose locations based on need and availability.  We do enroll out of district children.
