Thirteen slots have opened up for the current year of pre-kindergarten in Houston County. Children not already enrolled in the Georgia pre-K program are eligible to apply, and the spots will be first-come, first-served.
CB Watson Primary has two openings; Kings Chapel Elementary, two; Lindsey Elementary, seven; Northside Elementary, one; and Shirley Hills Elementary, one. Parents or legal guardians must pick up a Waiting List Information form from their school of interest and then visit the Central Registration office in the Bert Rumble Complex at 303 S.

The office is open from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and 8 a.m.-noon Wednesday. They need to bring their photo identifications, certified birth certificate for the child, guardianship/custody orders if applicable, two proofs of residency, social security card for the child and Georgia health forms 3300 and 3231.
Children must have turned 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2016, and parents will have to transport students who are out of their school’s zone.
