Little Spartans GSRP Classroom

Welcome to the GSRP Classroom!

We are thrilled you are considering our preschool for your little one. This option partners with the Great Start Readiness Program, with tuition grants available for children who qualify. We have full day slots and half day slots available.

Our GSRP classroom offers an engaging learning environment where children are encouraged to explore, create, develop friendships, and discover new skills. Our staff are committed to a common desire for excellence in meeting the needs of children and their families. The GSRP preschool is taught by Nicole VanZwoll and Abbey Toner, who partner with a qualified assistant, ensuring a ratio of one adult to every eight children. 

Registration may be completed online, via the Ingham County preschool website

Nicole VanZwoll has been working in education since 1995. She attended Grand Valley State University, where she earned a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education in 2014. She began substitute teaching in Grand Rapids and then worked with adjudicated youth in Ingham County. She was then hired as a long-term substitute at Gier Park in Lansing.  She has been working with the Great Start Readiness Program since 2011 in Grand Ledge and Okemos. 

In her spare time, she enjoys playing the piano, pickleball, riding her bike 100 miles each summer month, and rollerskating. She has recently begun a new aquarium hobby with guppy fish and African dwarf frogs. In her preschool classroom, the students enjoy the large collection of guppies that now call Webberville home!

Abbey Toner attended Eastern Michigan University for her Elementary Education Certification.  She majored in Mathematics and minored in Early Childhood Education.  She started working as a preschool teacher in 2012. 

She has three boys, one in middle school and two in elementary school.  Her two youngest boys play sports year round, so she spends time attending their games.  She also has two dogs: a Bernedoodle named Otis and a German shorthair pointer named Oreo.
