About the program...
Paving the Way Preschool is a state funded preschool program known as the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) provided for four-year-olds considered at-risk of school failure residing in Hillsdale Community School District.
Our program places a strong emphasis on teacher-directed learning as well as child-directed play. While planning learning activities, the teachers take into account various learning styles and interests to plan a well-rounded, developmentally appropriate curriculum. The Creative Curriculum is used as a valid and reliable assessment tool.
