Bibb schedules pre-K registration

Bibb County schools will launch pre-kindergarten registration with an event Feb. 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Welcome Center, 2003 Riverside Drive, Macon. Parents can register their children then and participate in educational activities.

Open registration will follow the event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays through Feb. 28 at the center. To register, bring the child’s certified birth certificate, Social Security card and proof of residence, which can be a current telephone, gas, water, electric or cable bill.

The school system has 748 pre-kindergarten slots for children who will be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2014. Parents must register their child for Pre-K at the Welcome Center. Children may attend Pre-K classes at either their neighborhood school or Northwoods Academy.

Students will be selected by a random computer lottery. Parents of accepted students must attend an orientation before the school year, or their child’s slot will be given to the next student on the waiting list.

For information on registration, call the Welcome Center at 779-3700 or Northwoods Academy at 779-3204.
