Pre-K Advisory Council provides help for area early learning programs

More than 20 Robertson County education and civic leaders met Friday morning, Sept. 12, to sharpen their awareness of Pre-K needs across the county.


The Pre-K Advisory Council meets at least twice annually to address early learning opportunities and needs.  Consisting of both public and private education personnel, the group exists to provide a community forum to continuously examine this vital first step in a child’s total scholarship.


Friday’s meeting addressed homelessness in Robertson County and how to deal with this growing issue.  According to RCS Family/School Liaison Lisa Cobb, the school system has a list of more than 70 who fall into this category. 



Pre-K Coordinator, Kathy Sneed also noted in the meeting that there needs to be greater awareness among parents of Pre-K schooling opportunities.  The early learning assistance provided, particularly to many that are economically disadvantaged, is invaluable in laying the groundwork for a successful education. 



Anyone needing questions answered or interested in registering a child for Pre-K may do so by contacting Kathy Sneed at Bransford Elementary School.
