  • Parents will also need to bring a copy of their child’s birth certificate or other acceptable proof of age and identity to verify the child’s birthday/age. Children must be 4 on or before September 1, 2020 to apply for the 2020-2021 Pre-K Program. Children who are 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2020 and have not attended Georgia’s Pre-K Program as a 4-year-old may enroll in the BCSS Pre-K program. Parents are encouraged to consider the child’s date of birth, physical maturity, emotional maturity, and prior experiences when making the decision to enroll their child in the Pre-K program at age four or at age five.
