The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) has officially launched its web page of family resources and activities reviewed and endorsed by the nationally-acclaimed Georgia’s Pre-K Program.

“Georgia’s Pre-K At Home” is available at and includes educational resources divided into four categories including Storytime, Virtual Field Trips, Let’s Go Outside, and Screen-Free Time. Activities are based on the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS) and involve simple household items easily found at home.

“Following the Governor’s Executive Order closing public elementary and secondary schools for in-person instruction, Georgia’s Pre-K Program classes in both public schools and private programs are closed through April 24, 2020,” said DECAL Commissioner Amy M. Jacobs. “We are hearing from parents who need more age-appropriate activities for their children during this time and our Pre-K specialists wanted to help.”

The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) is responsible for meeting the child care and early education needs of Georgia’s children and their families. It administers the nationally recognized Georgia’s Pre-K Program, licenses child care centers and home-based child care, administers Georgia’s Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS) program, federal nutrition programs, and manages Quality Rated, Georgia’s community powered child care rating system.
