Pre-K Information

Hello and Welcome to the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten informational page. Thank you for your interest! 

Voluntary Pre-K is an educational program that school districts may apply for on an annual basis and is funded by state and local funds. The purpose of the program is to provide your four-year-old child(ren), identified as being income-eligible, with the access to a quality educational environment, in hopes of preparing him or her for future educational success. The program is of no cost to the parent(s)/caregiver(s). 

Although South Carroll was awarded one PreK classroom for the 2022-2023 school year, funding for the Voluntary Pre-K program is determined by the State of Tennessee on an annual basis and has not been determined for the 2023-2024 school year; however, we are beginning the screening process and identifying eligible students now, in the event we are awarded this program.

In the event that programs are not filled with income-eligible four-year-old children, we are accepting three-year-old children to be on a waitlist.  Please complete the form below so that your child may be considered if and when an opening occurs:
