Private Pre-K Options
In our community there are Georgia Pre-kindergarten centers not only within our public school district, but within private schools and private daycare centers as well. The list above provides you with the private options available to you if the demand for our sites exceeds our available space.
Registration for 2023-2024 School Year
Registration for the 2023-2024 school year opened on February 27, 2023, and will remain open throughout the 2023-2024 school year. If you have reviewed the Pre-Kindergarten Guidelines, and you have the required documents, you are ready to register your child for Pre-Kindergarten.
- Only a child’s parent(s) or legal guardian(s) may register him/her for Prekindergarten. Your child does not have to be present for registration.
- A child enrolling in Pre-kindergarten must be at least four-years- old on or before September 1, of the school year the child will begin school. Children who are five-years-old on or before Sept. 1, who have not attended a Georgia Pre-Kindergarten for more than 30 days, are also eligible for Pre-Kindergarten unless you prefer your child to go to Kindergarten.
All Pre-Kindergarten registrations occur online via any Internet-enabled computer, cellular phone, or digital device. We do not accept any registrations prior to the advertised opening date. We encourage families to review our Online Registration Guide before registering.
What if I do not have access to the Internet?
If you do not have access to an Internet-enabled device, contact your zoned elementary school to make an appointment to register via their kiosks during school office hours from 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Are there evening registration times available?
Yes, Bulloch County Schools provides evening registration times prior to the lottery drawings. These are for families who do not have access to the Internet to register online, and who are unable to make a daytime appointment to register at their zoned school. Look for advertised times during the registration period. The school district will host the evening registration at the Bulloch County Board of Education, located at 150 Williams Road, in Statesboro.
What documents do I need to register my child?
Required documents can be uploaded online via any Internet-enabled device or cellular telephone as a digital file or digital photograph or hard copies can be brought to your zoned elementary school during regular business hours.
Eliminating paper registration for Pre-K through twelfth grades, allows the school system to contribute to a greener community, reduce our environmental impact, and improve customer service by providing 24 hour, 7 days per week online, access to the registration process.
Don’t Wait – Register Early
Register during the designated time. The number of children eligible for Pre-Kindergarten fluctuates each year. Sites that do not have enough students could risk closure, and the school system does consider out-of-zone registrations for parents who are willing to provide their own transportation. For these reasons, it is best not to miss the designated registration period. Please do not wait to register and assume a site will have enough space for your child.
Multiple Pre-Kindergarten Sites
If you are willing to provide transportation for your child, you may consider one of our sites that is not in your school zone. Questions are embedded within our online registration process that ask about your interest in your child attending one of our Pre-K sites that is outside of your school zone. Please note: If a child attends an out-of-zone site for Pre-Kindergarten, your child will return to your zoned elementary school for Kindergarten.
