Great Start Readiness Program

What is Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)?

GSRP is a nationally recognized Pre-K program for children who are 4-years-old on or before September 1st. 

The goal of our GSRP program is to provide a high-quality preschool experience that will prepare each child socially, emotionally, academically and physically for kindergarten and beyond. 

The GSRP program is taught by two highly qualified certified teachers who work as a team to provide a high-quality preschool experience. We maintain a 1 teacher to 8 student ratio.

Parents and families are encouraged to participate in their child's learning. There are many opportunities for families to help both in and out of the classroom.
