We currently have a small waiting list. To add your child to the waiting list please complete the forms below and email the forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be placed in order of receipt according to the time stamp on the email.
We will notify you as soon as there is a spot for your child.
The registration / waiting lists are typically very fluid throughout the summer as parents finalize their plans for the fall. We usually move people from the waiting list all the way into August each year.
Please attatch a copy of your child's birth certificate and a copy of a utility bill with your address on it to show proof of Georgia residency.
Print and complete the attached Pre-K Registration forms and bring them with you to register your child.
