NORTH WEST GEORGIA (October 6, 2017) | On Monday, October 2, 2017, Sen. Jeff Mullis (R – Chickamauga) recently visited students from the Academy for Little People in Chickamauga, Georgia to celebrate Georgia Pre-K week.
“I had a wonderful time reading to the children at the Academy for Little People,” said Sen. Mullis. “It was great to visit with the children and staff and to see firsthand the quality early learning the school is providing for our youth to keep them on track and prepared for their educational experience in the future.”
Georgia’s Pre-K program started in 1992 and has educated over 1.4 million Georgians in 25 years. This week marks the 7th annual Georgia Pre-K week, a time that is set aside yearly to celebrate and raise awareness of Pre-K programs statewide. It is organized each year by Voices for Georgia’s Children, a policy and advocacy non-profit organization, and supported by more than 15 child-focused partner organizations. Leaders from across the state are encouraged to read to students, participate in classroom activities and see firsthand the impact of early learning.
