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.      

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.

Preparing for Pre-K

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

We strongly encourage parents to practice handwashing with their child so they can independently wash his or her hands at the start of Pre-K.
