Little Hawks Discovery Preschool

Great Start Readiness Program

Tuition free preschool is available for qualifying 4-year-olds in our afternoon 4-day a week sessions through Michigan’s Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP).

Guidelines for qualifying are based on family size and income. Below are the guidelines for the 2020/21 school year.

Family Size

Family Income


Scholarships for sessions other than Michigan’s Great Start Readiness Program are available for families who qualify through Ready for School, a local non-profit partner, and our own Little Hawks Advisory Group Scholarship Fund. Scholarships from Ready for School and the Little Hawks Advisory Group Fund can cover up to half of the tuition cost.

One universal application is used to apply for all tuition assistance/scholarships. The application should be completed online. If you are unable to complete the online application, you can complete a paper copy (email us at littlehawks@outdoordiscovery.org for a copy of the paper application) and mail it to Little Hawks Discovery Preschool, 4214 56th Street, Holland, MI 49423.

Proof of income for 2019 (W-2 or Tax Form 1040) is required as a part of the application for assistance in the 2020/21 year. Attach the required documents to paper applications or upload a copy of the required document when completing the online application form. (Please black out social security numbers for ALL family members on the tax returns.)

NOTE: Application for tuition assistance is NOT a preschool registration. Registration for preschool must be completed in addition to the tuition assistance application. To register your child for a session at Little Hawks Discovery Preschool, you must complete our online registration process.
