Pre-K Where Can I Sign Up?

What is Georgia's Pre-K Program?
Georgia's Pre-K Program is a lottery funded educational program for Georgia's four year olds to
prepare children for Kindergarten. Pre-k began as a pilot over 20 years ago with 4- year- olds
from low income families. Today the program serves more than 84,000 children regardless of
household income.

Who is eligible for Georgia's Pre-K Program?
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. Georgia’s Pre-K Program is voluntary for families and for providers.

Coweta County’s Pre-K Program
Coweta County annually provides services to approximately 550 age eligible four year olds. Our program provides a full day (6.5 hours) of age appropriate instructional services to students. The full day program provides a language-rich environment using the High Scope Curriculum which emphasizes a child-centered learning environment. All teachers are certified with a least a four year degree in Early Childhood Education.Teachers provide instructional activities and learning experiences in the areas oflanguage/literacy, math, art, science, social studies and creative expressions.Each Pre-k class features a lead certified teacher and an assistant. A maximum of twenty-two (22) students receive services in each class. Coweta County is committed to providing a high quality preschool experience in school readiness that will lead to life-long success. Parents are truly valued as a vital component of educating the whole child. Therefore, strong parental involvement is encouraged to ensure success for each of our Pre-k students.

Coweta County Lottery Process 
The Pre-K program is an annual grant that operates based on adequate funding from the approved state legislative budget. Although the lottery is held each year in the Spring for the Fall student selection, it does not guarantee that the funding will be available for the scheduled school year or program. In order to be fair and transparent in our selection for Pre-K students, Coweta County utilizes a lottery process. Unfortunately, each year, we have more students than we do available seats and the lottery affords the opportunity for all registered students to have a fair chance.
