Great Beginnings is home to one of the Georgia's largest pre-kindergarten programs with five Pre-K classes and 110 children currently enrolled in our Sugar Hill location. The Georgia Pre-K program at Great Beginnings provides age appropriate activities and learning experiences that help prepare young children for school. Georgia Pre-K is designed to promote school readiness, meaning that children are socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively prepared for success in kindergarten. The Georgia Pre-K Program helps children become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners. Participation in the program encourages children to develop good habits and daily routines.
The Georgia Pre-K Program encourages teachers to adopt child-centered instructional practices based on the interests and the skill levels of each child. Research shows that children benefit most when instruction is child-centered. Child-centered instruction allows teachers to facilitate learning in a rich environment that fosters children's initiative, exploration, and collaborative interaction with other children and adults.
