In Monroe County Schools, we are proud to be a part of Georgia’s lottery-funded Pre-K education program. We offer 3 Pre-K classes at each of our elementary schools (Thomas G. Scott Elementary, Katherine B. Sutton Elementary, and Samuel E. Hubbard Elementary) serving a total of 198 students.
The Center for Public Education reports, “There is strong evidence showing that young children who participate in high-quality pre-k programs enter school more ready to learn than their peers. The national Early Childhood Longitudinal Study—Kindergarten Cohort shows that students who attended a pre-k program scored higher on reading and math tests than children receiving parental care. Students who attended a child care center or other preschool program also showed gains, although former pre-k students exhibited the greatest achievement.” (www.centerforpubliceducation.org)
"Not only will your child be loved and cared for, but they will acquire important skills needed to be successful in kindergarten."--Jennifer Hall, K.B. Sutton Elementary Pre-K Teacher
“As a Pre-K teacher, I have the opportunity to teach children fundamental academic principles through play and with differentiated instruction to meet the child's individual needs. It is my goal that each student leaves Pre-K, "Kindergarten Ready" with a LOVE for school and learning!”--Kim Winters, T. G. Scott Elementary Pre-K Teacher
