Children must be four years of age on September 1, 2019, based on acceptable documentation, such as birth certificates, certificates of live birth, passports, official medical documents, legal documents, or official documents from other countries. Only children whose birthdates are from September 2, 2014, through September 1, 2015, are eligible for participation in the 2019-2020 school year. Proof of age eligibility must be on file the day the child begins the Pre-K program. Payments to Pre-K providers will be reduced for children without age documentation on file the first day of school. Children who are five years of age on September 1, 2019, and have not attended Georgia’s Pre-K Program as four-year-olds, may enroll in the Pre-K program. Parents and teachers are encouraged to consider the child’s date of birth, physical maturity, emotional maturity, and prior experiences when making the decision to enroll the child in the Pre-K program at age four or age five.
