Over 100 Openings for Free or Low-cost Summer Preschool Now Available

News Release:

The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) of Ottawa County has over 100 openings for free and low-cost high-quality summer preschool for children who turned four by October 1, have not had any preschool experience in GSRP or Head Start in 2014-15 and who will attend kindergarten or young fives in September, 2015.

“It’s not too late for your child to attend preschool before the school starts this fall,” said Veronica Pechumer, Ottawa County Great Start Coordinator for Ottawa Area Intermediate School District (OAISD). “There are many openings for full-day preschool still available in Ottawa County. And, a family of four making up to $59,625 could qualify for free preschool.”

OAISD supports the local Great Start Readiness Programs to provide high-quality preschool education. OAISD works directly with school districts, community agencies, and childcare centers who provide the preschool services for families within the community.

“Preschool sets the foundation for a more successful kindergarten and young fives experience by helping children learn how to follow classroom rules, get along with others and get a base for math and reading skills,” said Tami Mannes, PhD., OAISD director of early childhood services. “Additionally, children who attend preschool are more likely to graduate high school and attend college.”
