The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is a FREE preschool program for families that meet program requirements; including eligibility guidelines and/or existing risk factors. Utica Community Schools GSRP provides children with high quality, play based experiences, rich in language and literacy.  Programs are developmentally appropriate and prepare students for the rigors of kindergarten upon program completion. The GSRP program follows the Early Childhood Standards of Quality and Curriculum Guidelines set by the Michigan State Board of Education and licensing requirements of the Department of Human Services.  

Enrollment is limited and prioritized based on income.  Low/extremely low income is the primary determining factor when placing children into GSRP.  This provides children whom might otherwise not have the opportunity to attend a high quality preschool program, the opportunity to attend, tuition free.  "
Research on preschool programs and specific research on GSRP indicates that children provided with a high-quality preschool experience show significant positive developmental differences when compared to children from the same backgrounds who did not attend a high-quality preschool program." (MISD, Early Childhood).
