HALF-DAY PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS

  • 2020/2021 School Year Information

     

    We have adjusted our GSRP and Discoveries programming for the fall and will offer both a full-day in-person option and two half-day online options for children. These options will stay the same while Michigan is in Phase 4 of the Safe Start Plan. Once Okemos Public Schools return to face to face learning, we will adjust our programming as needed. The first day of class will be Monday, September 14th. Both options are in session Monday through Thursday.

    Full-Day In-Person: Hours will be from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Class size will be reduced to no more than 11 students while we are in Phase 4. We are in the process of hiring a new teacher for this class. GSRP will provide snacks and lunch for students, though snacks and meals will not be family style during the pandemic. Students and staff are required to wear masks and social distance to the best of their ability. Rest time will be included in the daily schedule. Home visits will occur virtually prior to the first day of class. For tuition students, the cost will be $632 per month.

    Half-Day Online: The morning hours are typically 8:45-11:45 and the afternoon hours are 12:30-3:30. There will be live teaching as well as activities that can be done on your own. The structure will include large and small group instruction, individual family instruction, parent meetings, and tracking student progress through the use of assessment and documentation. Students will not be expected to be online for the entire time they are in class. Parent support will be necessary for the success of this option. For tuition students, the cost will remain the same at $316 per month.

    If there is more interest than spots for the in-person class, we will pull a lottery from the interested applicants.
