South Lake is now offering FREE high quality preschool for 4 year olds who qualify through the Michigan Great Start Readiness Program. There is no cost to families but children must meet program eligibility. This includes:
- Child must be 4 years old
- Child must be a South Lake resident (Out of District residents will be accepted in August based upon availability)
- Family income must be within the program allowances
- Child’s “At-Risk” factors will be taken into consideration to determine eligibility
Our program follows the Early Childhood Standards of Quality and Curriculum Guidelines set by Michigan State Board of Education as well as following the licensing requirements of the Department of Human Services. Program planning is developmentally appropriate with the goal of preparing students for the rigors of Kindergarten upon completion.
Research indicates that children provided with a high quality preschool experience show significant positive developmental differences when compared to children from the same backgrounds that did not attend a preschool program. The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is for children who may be at risk of becoming educationally disadvantaged and who may have extraordinary need of special assistance.
