Welcome to the Great Start Readiness Preschool Program (GSRP) webpage.  GSRP is a free preschool program for eligible four year olds in communities throughout Berrien County. 

GSRP and Head Start work together to serve as many families as possible in our communities.  Income eligibility guidelines are set by the State of Michigan for GSRP programs and by the Federal Government for Head Start programs. Each program must follow the specific guidelines of their program to maintain funding for preschool services. Since GSRP has an income-based eligibility, some families will be charged tuition for their child's preschool experience. 

This website page describes the GSRP program and provides forms, processes, and resources that are currently in place at all GSRP sites. You will also find a listing of GSRP sites in Berrien County with contact information so you can contact the school directly should you have questions.

Thank you for exploring the GSRP program focused on educational success for 4-year old children. Feel free to contact the Berrien RESA for more information.
