Pre K:

The Dawson County School's Pre-K Program is a GA Pre-K program, funded through the Georgia Lottery and the Dawson County School System. It was created to prepare eligible 4-year-old children for Kindergarten. Students must be 4 on or before September 1 and be Dawson County residents to be eligible for Dawson County Pre-K during the current school year. GA Pre-K Programs operate under Bright From The Start: The Department of Early Care and Learning and follow their rules and regulations. Class size is restricted, so space is limited in our Pre-K programs. Enrollment is based on a lottery system. For more information, visit Bright from the Start.
Riverview Elementary is the proud home to 2 of Dawson County School's GA Pre-K classrooms! 


Tiger PREP, Preschool Readiness Education Program

This program is dedicated to the early identification and services of children, ages 3-5, with developmental delays and other exceptionalities. The program is designed with the developmental stages of the young child in mind. The curriculum offers pre-academic, play-based activities through which a child's Individual Education Program can be addressed. Tiger PREP services are provided in a variety of locations throughout Dawson County, including a child's preschool or daycare provider or in one of our Tiger PREP classrooms, which are located within Riverview Elementary.

If a child is found eligible for services, one or more of the following supports may be offered: social/emotional, adaptive, motor, communication, and/or cognitive support, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, physical therapy, and hearing/vision services. Services offered will be based on student needs. 

If you suspect a child under your care may be experiencing a delay, please notify Tiger PREP by contacting:
