Pre-K Program

Welcome to Pre-K

The goal of every Georgia Pre-K classroom is to provide our four-year-olds with the experiences that they need to prepare for kindergarten. In 1993, Gordon County Schools had the foresight to be instrumental in establishing one of the first Pre-K sites in the state of Georgia. Currently, Gordon County Schools has sixteen Pre-K classrooms. Please read the special statement linked to the right of this page about how the Georgia Lottery funds our Pre-K in the state of Georgia.


Children must be four years old on or before September 1. Children who are five years old by September 1, may attend Pre-K if they have not previously attended a Georgia Pre-K.
