Child Services

The Child Services Department of Grand Haven Area Public Schools oversees the Open Door Child Care and Preschool Development programs in our district. We also process applications for the Great Start Readiness and Head Start programs within GHAPS.

 

We are currently offering in-person assistance at our office. We do ask that everyone wear a mask who enters our building.  We are also answering questions and accepting registrations through email (children@ghaps.org), the drop box outside our office at 106 S. Sixth Street (the sign above the door says Child Services) and through phone (616-850-6825).

 

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
