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.
The Georgia formulated definition of school readiness:
"A child's readiness for school is when...
- possible health barriers that block learning have been detected,
- suspected physical or mental disabilities have been addressed,
- enthusiasm, curiosity, and persistence toward learning is demonstrated,
- feelings of both self and others are recognized,
- social and interpersonal skills are emerging,
- communication with others is effective,
- early literacy skills are evident, and
- a general knowledge about the world, things, places, events, and people has been acquired."
