Still looking for an in-person preschool option for your child? The Cherokee County School District has openings at two of its preschool centers.
Ralph Bunche Center in Canton and Johnston Preschool Center at Johnston Elementary School in Woodstock both have openings in the federally funded Head Start Program for children ages 3 and 4 (by Sept. 1, 2020) whose families must meet income eligibility requirements.
The preschool centers follow the same calendar as all other CCSD schools; parents drop-off and pick-up on a car-rider schedule similar to elementary schools. Head Start students also all receive breakfast and lunch at no charge as part of their school day.
Children in both of these programs enjoy a full day of learning and fun in a class led by a certified teacher with a paraprofessional assistant. There are separate classes for children who are 3 years old and children who are 4.
Preschoolers prepare for kindergarten with lessons on shapes, colors, letter and numbers; art, music and science hands-on activities; and learn to use a computer and tablet. Learning through play is an important part of every day with indoor centers and outdoor playground time, as is developing routines and understanding how to make friends and cooperate with others.
For more information, please email CCSD Head Start Family Partner Jo Morris at Ralph Bunche at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ludi Allen at Johnston at email@example.com.
