Fulton’s Prekindergarten Program

  • Fulton County Schools is proud to offer 85 lottery funded Georgia Prekindergarten Program classes in 45 elementary schools throughout the district. We provide children with the learning experiences they need in order to prepare for kindergarten.

    The district implements the state funded Georgia Prekindergarten Program. We provide age appropriate learning activities and experiences that help prepare young children for school. For a child to be school ready, it means they are socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively prepared for success in kindergarten.

    Fulton County's Prekindergarten Program helps children become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners. Participation in the program encourages children to develop good habits and daily routines. It encourages teachers to adopt child-centered instructional practices based on the interests and the skill levels of each child.

    Research shows that children benefit most when instruction is child-centered. Child-centered instruction allows teachers to facilitate learning in a rich environment that fosters children’s initiative, exploration, and collaborative interaction with other children and adults. To ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten, families are provided information and assistance in preparing for and gathering the documentation necessary for their child’s enrollment in kindergarten.

    ​Through Fulton's Prekindergarten Program, the child will:

    • Develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
    • Develop mathematics skills by recognizing and using numerical concepts, understanding patterns and relationships, and problem solving.
    • Develop science skills by exploring, manipulating, and experimenting with objects in the physical environment.
    • Develop the ability to move in ways that demonstrate control, balance and coordination.
    • Develop the ability to participate and function in a social environment.
