PRE-KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION FOR MERIWETHER COUNTY SCHOOLS
William Edgar, Director of the Pre-Kindergarten Program for Meriwether County Schools, has announced that Pre-Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-2018 school year will begin February 13, 2017.
The Pre-Kindergarten Program, funded by the state lottery, includes children who are 4 years old on or before September 1, 2017. Children who are 5 years old on or before September 1, 2017 and did not attend a lottery funded Pre-Kindergarten as a 4 year old may also register.
Each elementary school has a limited number of available spaces. Parents are encouraged to register their children as soon as possible.
At the time of registration you will need to provide your child’s certified birth certificate, social security card and proof of residence. If you receive or participate in any of the following programs, please supply documentation: Medicaid, Peach Care for Kids, Food Stamps (EBT), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Child and parent Services (CAPS), Education Program Application (for verification purposes you may be asked to show us your check stub). A Certificate of Immunization and Certificate of Eye, Ear and Dental Exam will be required at a later date.
Meriwether County Schools offers a pre-kindergarten program of high quality where all children can flourish regardless of their sex, ethnic group, social background, or currently developed skill level. Classrooms are designed to be developmentally appropriate to the children in each class. Each classroom is staffed with a state certified lead teacher, as well as a trained paraprofessional. The maximum number of students is twenty-two per classroom.
