Georgia Pre-K Program is a partnership between public schools, private licensed child care centers and DECAL.
GCCA strongly advocates for full investment in this lottery funded program to ensure positive child outcomes and future academic success. GCCA also supports full funding to protect businesses from underfunded, mandated program expenses that can reduce your center's program quality and result in business losses.
Pre-K contracts are posted at the end of March each year for the upcoming year.
If you currently have Georgia Pre-K classrooms and are considering ADDING a new class for next year, we highly recommend you ask for an expansion class at the beginning when you resign your contracts.
DECAL often grants new classes mid-year once roster counts and waiting lists have been analyzed and they look FIRST at those providers who asked for a new class during the application process!
