The sixth annual Georgia Pre-K Week was a huge success in educating state, community, and business leaders on the importance of early education. You joined a record-breaking 500+ Pre-K centers that registered with Voices for Georgia's Children to host a Pre-K Week celebration by inviting local leaders such as mayors, superintendents, policemen, firemen, city council members, and school board members to visit your Pre-K center.

Why should our Pre-K center participate?
To ensure that early education remains a priority for our state and local leaders, it is important that every community understands and supports quality learning for all children. Your Pre-K center’s participation will open up the opportunity for leaders to get a first-hand look at the high quality early learning taken place at your center.
What is the official book for Pre-K Week 2016?
The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister is this year’s official book. You should, however, feel free to use any of the high-quality, age appropriate books listed by Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
