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.
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. Five-year-old children who have not previously attended the Pre-K program and who have late birthdays or developmental delays that impact their readiness for school may also enroll at the request of their parents.
Proof that a child is age eligible and is a Georgia resident is required to register for Pre-K. Acceptable proof-of-age includes birth certificate, passport, hospital record of live birth, green card, pink card or Federal I-94 card. Acceptable proof-of-residency includes a lease, utility bill or letter from a shelter or employer.
The Augusta University Child Care Center accepts applications for the Georgia Pre-K program each March for the following school year. A lottery is held to shortly after the application deadline and parents are notified soon after.
The Augusta University Child Care Center is a Quality Rated facility and accredited with NAEYC!
