Great Start Readiness Program Logo

Children who attend a high quality program in the year or two before kindergarten are better prepared for school academically, socially and emotionally.

Ingham has a collaboration of school districts and community-based providers who offer state (GSRP) and federally (Head Start) funded preschool services, along with tuition based options.

All the partner agencies listed below are committed to supporting families and ensuring that every preschool child enters kindergarten ready to succeed. These programs offer a quality educational preschool experience.

One or more of these circumstances may qualify your child for tuition free preschool:

  • Family Income
  • Disability or Developmental Delay
  • Challenging Behavior
  • English as a Second Language
  • Parent/Guardian low educational attainment
  • Abuse/Neglect of child or Parent
  • Environmental risk(s) including:
    • Single parent home
    • Sibling issues
    • Teen parent
    • Homeless or without stable housing
    • Child exposure to toxic substances

GSRP classrooms are offered in high quality settings as defined by the Great Start to Quality. To learn more about why high quality matters and how the Great Start to Quality defines high quality programming, visit their website.
