About GSRP

The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is Michigan's state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children with factors which may place them at risk of educational failure.  The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Great Start.  Funding is allocated to each intermediate school district to administer the program locally.

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.

Our GSRP program operates Monday - Thursday from 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.  We do not operate on Fridays. Our program serves breakfast, lunch, and a snack everyday. If you are interested in filling out an application, please call Mrs. Edwards at (734) 713-5525 or email at M.Edwards@americanintlacademy.com. 

To fill out an application you MUST bring the following with you:
-Birth Certificate

My passion is to provide children with a healthy, safe, fun, and stimulating learning environment for them to become successful.

I have over 40 years of experience working with children and families.

I have coached and mentored teachers and assistant teachers for over 20 years.

I have a Master of Education in Early Childhood from Oakland
