GSRP Program

The GSRP program is for children 4 years of age.

A typical day with GSRP

8:15 am – 8:45 am Arrival and Breakfast. Children arrive and are greeted by the staff. Teachers work with families to provide a supportive, consistent, environment that waits until the child is ready. Snack will be served family style, which allows the children and adults time to socialize and develop self-help skills.
8:45 am – 8:55 am Greeting Time. Children and teachers read books together and then review the message board which lists announcements, special helpers, and plans for the day.
8:55 am – 9:15 am Large Group Time. Children participate in activities lead by teachers with their class. Some of these activities include: music and movement, large motor games, listening and following direction games.
9:15 am – 9:35 am Small Group Time/Planning Time. Children are separated into the same developmentally-appropriate groups so individualized curriculum can be practiced and assessed. At the end of small group time, children make their “plan” for inside choice time.

These include: language, fine motor, science and math, sensory, writing, gross motor, art and dramatic play.
