The Voluntary Pre-K initiative provides Tennessee's four-year-old children—with an emphasis on four year olds who are at-risk—an opportunity to develop school readiness skills (pre-academic and social skills).
Voluntary Pre-K classes promote a high-quality academic environment, which fosters the love and joy of learning and promotes success in kindergarten and throughout the child's life.
Rutherford County Schools offer 15 Voluntary Pre-K programs, with the majority of classrooms being housed in the Smyrna/Lavergne area of the county. Each classroom is staffed by a certified teacher and educational assistant and has seats for 20 students.
Registration for the 2021-22 school year will open April 12, 2021. You may pick up a paper application at Eagleville, John Colemon, Kittrell or Walter Hill Schools, or there will be an application link available on the Rutherford County website on April 12, 2021.
