The Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education in Montgomery is the state agency that oversees Alabama’s state-funded PreK program. Pre-K has expanded from its beginning with few classrooms in the state serving over 25% of Alabama four-year-olds.
Now every school in the Lauderdale County system has a Pre-K program and some are fortunate enough to have multiple units. We use developmentally appropriate instruction to provide four-year-olds with a wide variety of experiences to help prepare them for kindergarten and a lifetime of learning.
