The Van Buren County Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is accepting applications for 2023-2024 school year. GSRP is a free preschool program, based on eligibility requirements. Paw Paw classrooms are located in the Cedar Street Campus. Application does not guarantee enrollment. Apply today at: vanburencountypreschools.org
Due to the popularity of the PPPS Early Childhood Education (ECE) Program, families are encouraged to enroll children as soon as possible for this fall! At this time, the 4-year-old classroom is full, but there's still time to add your child's name to a waiting list. Several spots are still open for the 3-year-old class, and when that class is full, another waiting list will be started. Currently, space is available in the 2 1/2 - to 3-year-old class and the preschool-readiness room, but these are also filling quickly. For more information, please contact the ECE Director: email@example.com.
If you're looking for an exciting new adventure for your 5 to 12-year-old child this summer, there are a limited number of spots open in the all-new PPPS BASE Summer Camp!

Registration forms and camp fees should be returned to the Cedar Street Campus and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
