Tender Tech Child Development Center, a program of Southern Crescent Technical College, is currently enrolling for the Pre-K Program for the 2019-2020 school year.
Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a lottery funded educational program for Georgia’s four year olds to prepare children for Kindergarten. It is a free program to qualified children. Children four years of age on September 1 of the current school year who are Georgia residents are eligible to attend Georgia’s Pre-K Program during this school year. Georgia’s Pre-K Program is voluntary for families and for providers.
Located on the SCTC Flint River Campus in Thomaston, Tender Tech’s Pre-K Program is will operate on the Upson-Lee School System calendar for the length of a typical school day. Tender Tech will have most of the same holidays as Upson-Lee with a few teacher work days different. A calendar is available for interested parents. Our program will begin at 8:00 a.m. and be dismissed at 3:00 p.m. For our parents who work or need child care after 3:00 p.m., Tender Tech’s after school program is available for a tuition fee.
Parents or guardians interested in enrolling their child in the Tender Tech Pre-K program should contact or visit the center at 706.646.6200 or at 1533 Highway 19 South in Thomaston. An application and specific documents must be presented at registration. These documents include:

Tender Tech Child Development Center will utilize “Creative Curriculum” with our Pre-K classroom. Our teachers will write individualized, weekly lesson plans based on a theme. Each week will be a different theme. We will also learn a color, shape, number and letter each week. Our lesson plans are structured using the Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards (GELDS).
The students enrolled with Georgia Pre-K will also be assessed and parents will be notified of the results. Parent/Teacher conferences will be held so both parent and teacher can work on a plan of learning for each child.
Tender Tech Child Development Center is a division of Southern Crescent Technical College and is individually accredited by Bright from the Start and the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
