Pre-Kindergarten Program

The mission of the Houston County Pre-Kindergarten Program is to provide developmentally appropriate educational opportunities for four-year old children and their families.  The program will promote a partnership among the child, family, school and community to encourage life-long learning.      

Houston County School Pre-K

The Houston County School District Pre-K Program strives to ensure that every child in every school has access to a high-quality education that promotes their academic, social, emotional, and physical development. We are committed to helping your child reach his or her fullest potential, prepared to enter kindergarten.  In partnership with our parents, we strive to meet each child's needs in all areas.  Together, we can accomplish great things and take pride in your child's success.

 

We welcome your questions and concerns.

Below are links and resources for parents to help their child prepare for Pre-K.
