Free Georgia Pre-K
Georgia's Pre-K program, funded by the state's lottery system, aims to prepare students for Kindergarten. Our dedicated teachers, utilizing a best-in-class Curriculum, provide students with enriching learning activities. Through small group, large group, and center-based activities, students explore and experiment in the classroom. Our curriculum covers seven important areas, including language and literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, creative expression, social and emotional development, and physical development. These standards align with the Kindergarten Georgia Performance Standards (GPS).
At Otter Learning, we believe in a balanced approach, combining teacher and child-directed instruction. We encourage students to think critically, reason effectively, and communicate confidently. Our supportive environment incorporates movement, hands-on activities, and language, which are essential for learners in this age group.
Enrichment areas such as creative arts, music/movement, dramatic play, blocks, language, outdoor activities, science/sensory, academic options, and math/manipulatives provide additional opportunities for growth and exploration.
