GA Pre-K

What is Georgia’s Pre-K Program?
Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a state lottery-funded educational program for all eligible four-year-old children in Georgia. Children four years of age on September 1 of the current school year who are Georgia residents are eligible to attend Georgia’s Pre-K Program during this school year. The purpose of Georgia’s Pre-K Program is to prepare children for success in Kindergarten and later school years. Registration is based on a first-come, first-serve order of those who have all of the required documents in hand.

ALL-INCLUSIVE BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL CARE AND SCHOOL BREAK WEEK CAMPS AVAILABLE
