This blog contains information about GA Lottery Pre-K and how you can get your child to join.
What is GA Lottery Pre-K?
Pre-Kindergarten is a program that provides children with a beautiful learning experience. There are age requirements for children to enroll in this program; they must meet age eligibility by turning four years old by September 1st of each school year for a total of 180 school days.
Our program provides a perfect, language-rich environment in which children are introduced to the formal educational setting that begins in kindergarten. Our all-GA Pre-K classes use the creative curriculum and the Georgia Early Learning and Developmental Standards, which emphasize a child-centered environment that helps children learn according to their choices and positive interactions while developing good relationships in our classrooms. The curriculum we provide for our students involves active learning and includes age-appropriate materials.
Georgia’s Pre-K Program helps children become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners. Participation in the program helps children develop good habits and daily routines.
This program is state-funded and is provided to families at no charge. It will also provide all the necessities of the Georgia Lottery Pre-K program. The class is based on a constructive environment, exploring subjects and learning domains through project-based work, and through these projects, children will learn a lot and their confidence level will boost.
