What is GSRP?
GSRP is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children with factors that may place them at risk of educational failure. The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE).
Why should you consider a high-quality preschool for your child?
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. High-quality GSRP programs prepare children to be successful in Kindergarten and throughout life.
What is our goal?
The goal of the program is to encourage the development of children and prepare them for successful entry into Kindergarten using developmentally appropriate practices in a play-based curriculum.
What is a play-based curriculum?
Diman-Wolf Early Childhood Center uses Creative Curriculum, a play-based curriculum that focuses on eight domains: Language Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, Social & Emotional Development, and Physical Health & Development. Creative Curriculum for Preschool, is a scientifically-based curriculum, along with an internet-based child assessment system to measure progress and make program improvements. Creative Curriculum is play-based which means that children have the opportunity to choose activities which they find interesting and fun. At the same time, teachers have intentionally planned these activities knowing what children will learn as they interact with the materials in the classroom.
It’s easy to enroll.
