Great Start Readiness Program

  • Thank you for your interest in Davison’s Great Start Readiness Program.  Starting Monday, March 1, 2021, you will be able to pre-register for the upcoming 2021/2022 school years.  There are two important steps to complete in order to pre-register for Davison GSRP.

    Step 1

    You must first fill out a GSRP interest form online by clicking on the link or visiting  Your interest form will go directly to the GISD for review.  If you qualify and choose our Davison Schools GSRP program, your interest form will be forwarded to our Early Learning Office in order for us to get started with the process of registering your child in our GSRP program.  In Davison, we have GSRP programs at the Central Elementary campus and at the Cardinal’s Nest preschool building.

    Step 2

    After you fill out the GSRP online interest form, you can click HERE to print out a packet, fill out the required documents included and return them, along with the additional forms needed, to the Central Elementary campus between March 1st and June 18 between 9:00 am-3:00 pm.  If you do not have access to print the documents from the website, you may also pick up a packet from the Early Learning Office at Central Elementary, 600 S. State St., door #4, between 9:00 am-3:00 pm or take one from the small labeled bin located under the awning for after hours.  Please take one packet per child.  DO NOT LEAVE COMPLETED PAPERWORK IN THE BIN OUTSIDE.  If needed we can make copies for you.  Only one person at a time will be allowed inside, you MUST wear a mask and practice social distancing.

    Certified teachers use a state approved kindergarten readiness curriculum.  The child to adult ratio is 1:8.  This program is Michigan’s state funded and endorsed preschool program for eligible 4 year old children.  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 Legislature.

    If your child will be 4 on or before September 1, you may fill out the preschool interest form by visiting:  For more information call (810) 591-0922.

    Thank you and we look forward to meeting all of you!
