Great Start Readiness Program – GSRP

Mt. Pleasant Public Schools are pleased to connect you with the Great Start Readiness Program! GSRP is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for 4-year-old children with factors which may place them at risk of educational failure. 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.

The Mt. Pleasant Public Schools GSRP is a full day preschool program that runs Monday-Thursday at the Rosebush Early Learning Center. Students are able to learn a variety of skills including literacy, social-emotional, and creative arts through their own play and open ideas. One of the GSRP classrooms is an inclusive preschool that brings together students with special needs and their typically developing peers to grow and learn from each other.
