Pre-K Week Launch

Helping to ensure all children in Georgia have a solid start, this week Voices for Georgia’s Children kicked off the Countdown to Pre-K Week at the State Capitol! The 9th annual Georgia Pre-K Week will be held October 7-11, 2019. Georgia Pre-K Week raises awareness about the importance of quality early childhood education. Community leaders and elected officials visit Pre-K centers in their districts to see early learning in action and read a favorite children’s book to the young learners.This year’s official book for Georgia Pre-K Week is Llama Llama Red PajamaJoin Llama Llama over the next few months on his journey to Georgia Pre-K Week! He’s already been rubbing elbows with the folks under the Gold Dome. See where he goes next! Follow Llama Llama on Twitter at @PrekLlama.

Additionally, to encourage participation in Georgia Pre-K Week, legislators received treats bearing facts about the importance of early education.
