Mission Statement

PELC's GSRP program exists to prepare children to be successful in Kindergarten, while remaining developmentally appropriate to 4-5 yr old children. Our staff provides opportunities for active and continuous family involvement in order to strengthen learning at home and positive child outcomes.

About GSRP

GSRP is a state-funded pre-kindergarten program. Our staff is highly qualified, professionally trained in preschool curriculum and teaching, and ready to completely engage your child in a developmentally appropriate way. Welcome to preschool!

Program Cost

The amount you are responsible for depends on your level of qualification. Once you turn in your enrollment forms, we will process your application and contact you with your tuition cost. Many of our families are eligible for completely free preschool!

Schedule

GSRP preschool runs 8:20-3:20 Monday-Friday. All students must attend the full days, 5 days a week to participate. GSRP follows the Parchment School District calendar including holiday breaks, teacher professional development days, and snow days.

Meals and Snacks

GSRP provides Breakfast, Lunch, and an afternoon Snack every day. (For a half day of school, we will provide Breakfast only.) We are required to keep a completed Free and Reduced Meal Application on file for each student, regardless of income. We are also required to keep a Household Income Eligibility Statement.
