Pre-K openings at two Dothan schools

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The school year may have started but it's not too late to sign your little one up for pre-k.

Girard and Cloverdale Elementary Schools received a $150,000 grant to start their first pre-k classrooms.

Several Dothan City Schools are benefiting from the "First Class Pre-K Program" from the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education.

There are a couple slots still available at Girard and one at Cloverdale. Pre-k teacher Jan Graves says the four-year-olds have learned so much since they've started this year.

"They have adjusted great,” said Graves. “They are a very curious group of children, they are learning socially and emotionally. We spend a lot of time playing in centers where they explore lots of new ideas and new tools."
