Georgia Lottery Pre-Kindergarten

Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a lottery funded
educational program for Georgia’s four year olds
to prepare children for Kindergarten.

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 the school year.

Because participation in Georgia’s Pre-K
Program is voluntary for public schools and for
private child development centers, there may
not be enough spaces in every community for
all four year olds who wish to participate.
Families with children enrolled in other Stepping
Stones programs will be given priority for Pre-K
positions.

Our Pre-K program operates on the regular
school system calendar for the length of a
typical school day. Extended day services
beyond the 6.5 hour instructional day
(beforeand after-school care) is also available.
