Sept. 30 - Oct. 4 is the state’s official Pre-K Week hosted by Voices for Georgia’s Children (www.georgiavoices.com) and its Pre-K Week partners.
To celebrate the Pre-K Program, nearly 150
officials visited some of the approximately 3,800 Pre-K classrooms located
in all 159 counties in Georgia. Around
the state, attention was turned to the tens of thousands of Georgia’s
youngest children in celebration of the important work they are doing to
prepare for school success.
Georgia State Sen. Gloria Butler visited Discovery Point #1 in Centerville on Oct. 3 to read two books from the "Pete the Cat" series to the center’s 4-year-olds as part of Georgia’s Pre-K Week.
Along with Robin Currie, the center’s Department
of Early Care and Learning Pre-K consultant, Butler also observed Pre-K
classroom and playground activities and toured the center’s other classrooms.
