I am the proud mother of a toddler at JAC Daycare and Preschool, for me it is the next best thing to having my own family provide a warm, loving, safe, and educational environment for my child. I highly recommend to any parent considering sending their child to daycare/preschool.
GA Pre-K Programs at the JAC Preschool at East Cobb location
Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a funded educational program for Georgia’s four year olds to prepare children for Kindergarten. At JAC Pre-K, it is first come first served!
The first of the National Education Goals states “all children will start school ready to learn.” Keeping in mind the following contexts, Georgia formulated a definition of school readiness. We believe school readiness must be defined within the context of the nature of four year olds and how they learn. We believe it must be defined within the context of families and how they live. School readiness must be defined within the context of communities and the services they provide. And, it must be defined within the context of schools and their readiness for children.
What do you need for registration? Your child must be 4 years old by September 1. 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. You may order a birth certificate online directly from Georgia’s State Office of Vital Records using Official Vital Event Records (ROVER). Acceptable proof-of-residency includes a lease, utility bill or letter from a shelter or employer.
All children enrolled in Georgia’s Pre-K Program must have hearing, vision, and dental examination certificates (DHR Form 3300) on file within 90 calendar days of program entry. Form 3300 must be signed by a private practitioner or representative of a local Department of Health.
Immunizations (DHR Form 3231) must be up-to-date or affidavits must be on file within 30 calendar days of program entry. Only health departments and physicians licensed in Georgia can obtain blank immunization certificates (Form 3231). Take your child’s personal immunization record to a health department or Georgia physician and they can complete the form and give any required vaccines.
