Research on preschool programs and specific research on GSRP indicates that children provided with a high-quality preschool experience show significant positive developmental differences when compared to children from the same backgrounds who did not attend a high-quality preschool program.
Each district’s program provides children with high quality, play based experiences, rich in language and literacy. Programs are developmentally appropriate and prepare students for the rigors of kindergarten upon program completion.
The GSRP program follows the Standards of Quality and Curriculum Guidelines set by the Michigan State Board of Education and licensing requirements of the Department of Human Services.
The Macomb Intermediate School District (MISD) serves a consortium of Great Start Readiness Programs (GSRP) throughout the county.
