Kindergarten & Pre-K Round Up Meeting Resources

  • In March of 2023, Fulton County Schools Early Childhood Programs staff hosted two virtual sessions for parents of Pre-K and Kindergarten students.

Fulton County Schools’ Pre-Kindergarten Program

  • NOTE: The FCS Pre-Kindergarten program has limited spaces. Spaces are only allocated through a lottery application process which opens on March 1, 2023 and closes on March 17, 2023. View the 2023 – 2024 Pre-Kindergarten Lottery and Pre-Registration Guidelines in the ‘important documents’ section of this page.

    NOTE: The FCS Pre-Kindergarten program is funded through DECAL Bright from the Start. Lottery funding is never guaranteed, and classes are pending until state funding is awarded.

    Fulton County Schools implements the state-funded Georgia’s Pre-Kindergarten program. We are proud to offer 87 lottery funded Georgia’s Pre-Kindergarten classrooms in 47 elementary schools throughout the district.

    We provide children with developmentally appropriate learning activities and experiences that prepare young children to be school ready for Kindergarten. For a child to be school ready, they are socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively prepared for success in Kindergarten.

    Fulton County’s Pre-Kindergarten program helps children become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners. Participation in the program encourages children to develop good habits and daily routines. Research shows that children benefit when instruction is child centered. Child centered instruction allows teachers to facilitate learning in an 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 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.


  • Students who are four (4) years of age on or before September 1 of the enrollment year AND live within the Fulton County Schools attendance zone are eligible to enroll in the FCS Pre-Kindergarten program. Families must provide proof of birth (age) and residency to register for the program. Children are eligible to attend Georgia’s Pre-Kindergarten for one year only.
