WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT:
School readiness makes the transition to school less traumatic for children and families and gives students a strong foundation on which to build their educational future.
All Troup County four and five-year-old children are prepared for Kindergarten and First Grade
PROGRAMS WITH THIS FOCUS
Quality Rated Day Care Centers
Quality Rated is Georgia’s system to determine, improve, and communicate the quality of programs that provide child care. Quality Rated assigns one, two, or three stars to early education and school-age care programs that meet or exceed minimum state requirements. Our goal is for all children enrolled in a daycare to be enrolled in a Quality Rated daycare.
Troup County School System
The Troup County School System works hard to promote school readiness in the community. Through various early start programs, our local schools help parents prepare their little ones to learn.
Babies Learning on Course for Kindergarten Success (BLOCKS) is an initiative of the Magnolia Society focusing on early learning education. We believe every child in West Georgia should be ready for kindergarten.
