Cobb County Schools Georgia Pre-K Program

 

The Cobb County School District (CCSD) currently offers Georgia Pre-K at the South Cobb Early Learning Center located at 5891 Dodgen Road, Mableton, GA 30126. Georgia's Pre-K Program is a lottery funded educational program for Georgia's four-year-old children to prepare them for kindergarten. Student allotment is limited by the number of classes CCSD is granted by the Department of Early Care and Learning. Due to the limited number of student allotments, an enrollment lottery is conducted to determine admission. CCSD is not be responsible for providing an alternative Pre-K experience for a child if they are not awarded admission. Families are always encouraged to explore all options for GA Pre-K.

The Partnership

 

Ready, Set, READ!

The partnership between the Cobb County School District (CCSD) and Wellstar HealthSystem, Ready, Set, Read… is designed to build upon current national and state campaigns to improve early literacy among today’s children.  It has aimed to identify the best practices and promising partnerships that have been modeled at large scale and launch them in the local community served by Cobb County and Wellstar collaboratively.

WellStar

 

The Design

 
The  CCSD and Wellstar partnership is specifically designed to provide reading tips for parents and a reading readiness diagnostic for pediatricians to conduct at milestone visits that directly link to the teaching and learning standards for Kindergarten reading (and eventually math) in Cobb County classrooms.  This direct tie of early literacy development to kindergarten expectations unifies the role of the medical provider and teacher specifically around the children of our community.   Parents are provided digital resources to inform and model reading to young children. Developing early reading habits is essential to early literacy.
 

The Goal

 
The goal of this initiative is to ensure that parents have information and tools to support language and literacy development needed for early reading.  Early reading will increase your child’s readiness for school and ultimately provide a rich foundation for which all learning can occur.  Cobb County Schools and Wellstar are committed to the overall physical and cognitive development of the children of Cobb County.
