The Cherokee County School District has in-person openings in Head Start preschool classes.
Students who are 3 or 4 years old (as of Sept. 1, 2020) and meet family income eligibility requirements are eligible for the open seats at Johnson Preschool Center in Woodstock and Ralph Bunche Preschool Center in Canton.
The tuition-free, accredited preschool program follows the same hours as elementary school; parents drop off and pick up on the same car-rider schedule. Students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Students enjoy a full day of learning and fun in a class led by a certified teacher with a paraprofessional assistant. They prepare for kindergarten with lessons on shapes, colors, letter and numbers; art, music and science hands-on activities; and learn to use a computer and tablet. Learning through play is an important part of every day with indoor centers and outdoor playground time, as is developing routines and understanding how to make friends and cooperate with others.
For information, please call the front office of the school where you’d like to enroll your child: Johnston Preschool Center at 770-721-8490 or Ralph Bunche Preschool Center at 770.721.5370.
