Private & GA Pre-K Program | Age 4
What is Georgia's Pre-K Program?
Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a state lottery funded educational program for all age eligible four-year-old children in Georgia. The purpose of Georgia’s Pre-K Program is to prepare children for success in Kindergarten and later school years.
Pre-K programs usually operate on the regular school system calendar for the length of a typical school day. Programs may be offered at local public schools or through private providers of preschool services.
How does Georgia’s Pre-K Program prepare a child for success in Kindergarten and later school years?
The first of the National Education Goals states “all children will start school ready to learn.” Keeping in mind the following contexts, Georgia formulated a definition of school readiness. We believe school readiness must be defined within the context of the nature of four year olds and how they learn. We believe it must be defined within the context of families and how they live.
School readiness must be defined within the context of communities and the services they provide. And, it must be defined within the context of schools and their readiness for children.
Is my child eligible for Georgia's Pre-K Program?
To participate, children must be four years of age on or before September 1 of the school year and must be a resident of Georgia. If a child is not served as a four year old, then the child may be eligible to attend the Pre-K Program as a five year old.
All children enrolled in Georgia’s Pre-K Program must have hearing, vision, dental and nutrition examination certificates (DHR Form 3300) on file within 90 calendar days of program entry
