Pre-K Lottery Savannah

The madness that is the Savannah pre-k lottery (i.e. the race to get into your choice of free pre-Kindergarten) starts soon.

Applications for the 2011-2012 Pre-Kindergarten Program will be available Mon. Feb. 7, 2011 through Fri. March 4, 2011. The FREE Georgia pre-k program is a full-day program available at some public and private schools.

Coastal Empire Montessori Charter School holds its pre-K at different dates than the rest of the public schools. Click here for more info.

The FREE pre-K classses are funded by the Georgia Lottery and open to children who will be 4 years of age prior to or on September 1, 2011.

At Savannah-Chatham public schools, children will be selected through a lottery process, which will be held in late March 2011. Parents will receive written notification of acceptance or waiting list status. Applications will continue to be accepted after the classes are filled, but they will be placed in a “waiting” folder in the event that openings occur in the Pre-K classes.

To obtain an application, go to any of the sites with the program. The Information desk at 208 Bull Street will also have applications.

Private schools also offer the free pre-K program including Maggies’ Morning School, Savannah Youth University, Candler’s The Children’s House, and YMCA Childcare Plus: but many have a different application process. If you’re interested in a private child care that has it, call the school to find out when their applications are due. Many are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Deadline for SCCPSS Pre-K lottery is Friday

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – Parents can begin the application for Savannah-Chatham County Public School System’s Pre-K lottery starting Tuesday. They have about 1,400 seats available while close to 3,000 families usually apply. Before the process gets underway, school leaders want you to be prepared and ready to submit your application.

Ms. Xayadeth’s Pre-K students hang on her every word. They are eagerly engaged in her class and show up ready to learn, but the seats are limited.

“Last year we had an extensive waitlist,” said Amanda Drought, SCCPSS Program Manager for Early Childhood Education. “We are requesting from the state for additional classrooms, but we won’t find that out until probably may.”

With about 1,400 spots in 64 classes at 29 schools, nearly 3,000 families enter the Pre-K lottery hoping to be placed into a class. But that can’t happen if you don’t first submit your application on time. They open up for the 2020-2021 school year starting at midnight on February 18th.

“It’s a pretty simple process you just go online and you complete the application,” said Drought. “You’re able to choose up to three schools. One thing parents do need to know if they choose the school that their zoned for that they do get priority at that school.”

The application process for Pre-K is open until February 28th. While there’s no advantage to applying early, you don’t want to miss the window. Parents of students at the Early Learning Center at Henderson Formey Jr. School say filling out the application was simple.

“It was actually pretty easy,” Jermaine Childers, a current Pre-K SCCPSS dad. “Pretty simple, pretty painless. You know you go online slap some information in there and you’re good to go.”

School leaders say the application takes about ten minutes and you can even fill it out on your phone. They have a link that will activate at midnight, but you can also pick up a paper copy at Pre-K school sites and the front reception desk at 208 Bull Street.

Leaders say the process will be easier if you have the right documents ready.

“Number one have that certified birth certificate or we accept a passport,” said Amanda Drought of what families will need to finish the application. “Make sure that your proof of address is current.”

Again, the window to fill out your child’s pre-k application begins at February 18th and remains open until the 28th for Chatham County children who are four on or before September 1st of 2020.

Starting Tuesday parents can begin the application for Savannah-Chatham County Public School System’s Pre-K lottery. ]]>
