The Alcoa City Pre-K program provides a loving, learning environment with an emphasis on language development.  The pre-k staff strives to build strong home-school connection with our families from the moment we meet your child.  Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child's education with ample opportunities to volunteer and parent-child activities. Please visit the "Links" page for more helpful websites that promote family literacy activities and other helpful tools for taking an active role both at home and in the school setting.

      Alcoa Pre-K serves around forty students in three classrooms.  The pre-k teachers are Ms. Kristin, Ms. Monica and Ms. Lisa. Children may be eligible for participation in either of the two state pre-k classes.  Students eligible for special education services may be served by enrollment in our Special Education Pre-K class.   

     More information about enrollment options and curriculum in these programs may be obtained by using the "Document" link on this page, contacting Alcoa Elementary School, or contacting Kristin Whelahan at 865-982-3120.
