Great Start Readiness Program

  • Thank you for your interest in Davison’s Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP). The program is Michigan's state funded and endorsed preschool program for eligible 4-year-old children. Certified teachers use a state approved kindergarten readiness curriculum.  Family income and risk factors determine eligibility for free programming. Families making over an established amount of income may be eligible to attend for a small monthly tuition fee; however, eligibility and prioritization guidelines are followed. Criteria for tuition and eligibility is established annually by the state.
