This year marks the 21st anniversary of Georgia’s Pre-K Program recently ranked by the National Institute for Early Education Research as one of the top state programs in the nation, based on quality standards, teacher qualifications and enrollment….While Georgia’s Pre-K Program is extremely important to the child and valuable for the state, we are currently able to serve only 60 percent of the state’s four year olds. Even when we are (hopefully) able to serve all four year olds in the years to come, many children will enter Georgia’s Pre-K already behind.
