Great Start Program

Mill Creek GSRP Preschool is a state funded preschool program that provides quality programming for 4-year-olds. In order to prepare your child for kindergarten we focus on all aspects of child development. In addition to learning social/emotional skills through play and daily interactions, we also incorporate math, literacy, language, science, and social studies aspects throughout our day. We recognize parents as the child’s first teacher, and work with families in order to ensure each child has a positive learning experience!
