Georgia Pre-K Overview

The overall goal of the Georgia Pre-Kindergarten program is school readiness.

Georgia Pre-K emphasizes the following:

  • Active learning
  • Consistent daily routines
  • Positive behavioral management
  • Assessment strategies

The curriculum includes language and literacy, math concepts, science, social studies, arts, physical development, and social and emotional competence.

Pre-K Program Length & School Year

Georgia Pre-K provides a full 6.5-hour instructional day, 5 days a week, 180 days a year. Extended day services (before- and after-school care) are also available.

Demand often exceeds our available classroom space, so we encourage families to enroll early to secure their slot.
