Pre-Kindergarten Program

The PreK Program at Morgan County Charter School System is a fully-funded program by Bright From the Start (State) and YMCA Head Start (Federal) agencies. Housed at Morgan County Primary School, the school system has four Pre-K classes taught by certified teachers. Twenty students are allotted to each class.

Registration is now open until Noon on February 23rd for the drawing for one of the eighty PreK slots at the primary school.

Because more than the allotted 80 students usually register for the PreK program operated through the Morgan County Schools, a completely transparent public “lottery” style drawing is held each year after the registration window has been closed in order to determine the students who will be enrolled and served in the public school program.

This drawing will be held on February 26th at 5:00 in the boardroom of the Board of Education Central Office, 1065 East Avenue, Madison. (Parents do not need to be present for the drawing, but are invited to attend.)

Following the drawing, all parents will be notified by mail to the mailing address they provided to let them know if their child was selected to attend our program.

To enter the Pre-K Registration Drawing:

1. Fill out an online registration

2. Make an appointment with Lavonne Doty (706-752-4600)

3. Review the registration process and bring to the appointment your child’s birth certificate, Social Security Card, and two proofs of residency in order to participate in the drawing for a spot in the Morgan County Charter School System PreK classes.

*Computers for online registration are also available at the Board of Education Central Office.

Children who are not selected by the drawing to attend the Morgan County Schools’ program will then have the opportunity to attend the certified Bright from the Start program at Kiddy Land Early Learning Center, other private PreK programs, Headstart, or be placed on the waiting list for the Morgan County School System program, should a vacancy occur.

NOTE: Along with the Georgia Bright From the Start Lottery Program, the Morgan County Charter School System’s Pre-K Program is fortunate to be in a partnership with The Head Start Agency. In order to receive federal funding needed for a free Pre-K program, parents will be required to provide proof of income, along with other information/documentation once the child is selected.

To be eligible for the drawing, the child must be 4 years of age by September 1, 2018 and the parent/guardian and child must be residents of Morgan County.

Please feel free to contact Mrs. Mimi Young, Early Learning/Literacy Coordinator, at (706) 752-4644 if you have any questions or concerns.
