    United Children and Family Head Start offers services for 64 children in our blended funded Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP). GSRP slots are subcontracted slots with Head Start to create a full-day GSRP/Head Start “blend” within a classroom. This is accomplished by blending a part Day GSRP slot and a part-day Head Start slot to create the funding for a full-day GSRP/Head Start blend slot for one child.
