Great Start Readiness Program Grant (GSRP)

The UM-Dearborn Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) has been awarded the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) grant from the Michigan Department of Education.

Each year the ECEC applies for the Great Start to Readiness Program grant that is offered through the State of Michigan. This program allows us to provide free (or significantly reduced) preschool programming to children who are 4 years old by September 1st, 2024. 

The program runs Monday through Thursday from 8am to 4pm. Families who are interested can fill out the interest form attached and send it to the office ([email protected]). This way we can let you know when the state releases the additional forms that need to be filled out for each application. The program is largely based on family income right now, and the state will provide additional feedback to our program regarding enrollment timelines and qualification factors. 

We have gotten word from the state that there may be an online portal for families opening soon for GSRP paperwork and will let all interested families know if any forms or procedures update as we get more information from the State of Michigan.
