LITTLE TURTLE Early Childhood center

Nicki Gawlowski, Supervisor


The Little Turtle Early Childhood Center is a parent pay/tuition-based program.  Registration for the fall is held during the month of March - space is limited and the program fills up quickly. 

For further information, please click on the link above for their website which will show the many options available to parents for their children. 





Chippewa Valley Schools offers a tuition free preschool program called the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) to those families who meet the financial qualifications set by the State of Michigan.  Students must turn 4 years of age by September 1, 2024 to be eligible to participate in the program.  Please note that we have a very limited number of seats in our programs.

Families who reside in Macomb County may register at any GSRP location throughout Macomb County.  Click on the link below to view the list of other GSRP programs that might work for your family.  Please keep in mind that the programs offered through Chippewa Valley Schools do not offer before and after school child care (many of the other programs in the county do offer this). 

GSRP Programs in Macomb County

Please check back here on April 8, 2024 - A pre-qualification survey will be available to help us determine those families who will meet the state qualifications to participate in the GSRP program.  We are currently not taking names for interested families.
