In Michigan, 6,390 children under the age of three are enrolled in Early Head Start, and 21 percent of 4-year olds are enrolled in preschool. However, child care costs in the state are the 12th highest in the nation, with average costs hovering around $10,114 for infant care. The state is working to alleviate this financial burden on families, and Gov. Rick Snyder proposed an increase in funding of $65 million for the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP). This funding would provide at least 16,000 more half-day preschool slots for at-risk 4-year-olds. The Detroit News also mentioned that support for early education is growing in the state as parents and providers have excitedly filled newly available pre-K seats.
