Great Start Readiness Program

  • Thank you for your interest in Davison's GSRP program. Due to the emergency shut down the registration process will look different this year. There are two important steps to complete in order to pre-register for Davison GSRP. 

    Step 1: You must fill out a GSRP interest form online. You can go on the Davison Web Page to find the link for filling out an interest form by clicking on the Early Childhood tab at the top of the page and choosing GSRP. Or, you can simply visit Your interest form will go directly to the GISD. If you qualify for 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 go to the Davison Schools website and find a quick link to the required GSRP distance learning registration packet on the left hand side of the homepage. You can print out a packet, fill out the documents and return them to the Central Elementary campus between 

    Thursday, June 18th. If you prefer not to print your own registration documents, you can pick up a GSRP distance registration packet starting Monday, June 15th through Thursday, June 18th between 9:00-3:00. There will be a bin outside of the entrance at the Central Elementary GSRP location, 600 S. State St, door #4. Please take one packet per child. The packet will have instructions on the documents that need to be filled out, what types of documentation you will need to copy and return, as well as the eligibility and prioritization guidelines. Once completed, you will return the packet to the GSRP building during the week of June 15th-June 18th between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. DO NOT LEAVE COMPLETED PACKETS IN THE BIN OUTSIDE, We will have a table set up inside the entrance for you to drop off your documentation to staff. If needed we can make copies for you. Only one person at a time will be allowed inside, you MUST wear a face mask and practice social distancing.
