The program offers a high-quality experience for at-risk four-year-old students.
A variety of activities are offered to develop a student’s thinking, language, physical and social-emotional skills. Technology is also a big part of the program as there are 9 iPads and three computers in every room.
In Pre-K, the district gives a five-year-old Brigance test in the fall and again in the spring, and our students are showing much progress when compared to their peers.
The district has Pre-K programs at four elementary schools: Ashland City, East Cheatham, Pegram and West Cheatham.
Pre-K supervisor Emily Staggs highlighted the program’s success at the Dec. 4 Cheatham County School Board meeting.
The Pre-K teachers, assistants and administrative assistant Gena Batts were recognized at the meeting.
