Head Start is a federally-funded preschool program. Its success is based on compassionate partnerships between Head Start program staff and parents. In Michigan, local Head Start programs work with families to remove barriers to success and to deepen parents’ ability to support their children. Head Start services at NMC run from 8A-1:15 Monday- Thursday year-round with before and after care, as well as all day Friday care available for $4.25 per hour. DHS funding is accepted. Head Start is available to 3- and 4-year-old children.

GSRP: the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is a state-funded preschool program with aims that are similar to those of Head Start. While fewer children qualify for Head Start than GSRP, Great Start Readiness Program also serves families whose circumstances indicate a need for free early childhood education. GSRP at NMC runs from 8:30-3:30 Monday – Thursday during the school year. Before and after care is accepted, as well as all day Friday for $4.25 per hour, and DHS funding is also accepted. GSRP is available 4 yr. old children who turn 4 by Dec 1.

STRONG BEGINNINGS: Our 3 yr. old funded program is beginning January 11. Children must have turned 3 by Dec 1, 2020.
