Using Creative Curriculum as a guide, our teachers arrange each room into a variety of learning centers that provide the children with both active and quiet play experiences. Weekly Spanish classes are also included in our curriculum plan to promote diversity. Each classroom has a state certified lead teacher as well as a certified para-professional. All teachers are CPR, First Aid and Fire Safety certified.
Pre-K registration for the upcoming school year opens on March 1. Children must be 4 by September 1, 2022 to be eligible to attend Georgia Pre-K. Registration forms are available at the Welcome Center of participating YMCAs.
