Thousands of children are attending school for the first time this year through Georgia's Pre-K program.

It's the 21st year of the program, which serves 84,000 children throughout the state. Starting this year, school officials are launching a new project, called the Georgia Early Learning Development Standards. It aligns with the common core standards for K through 12.

"These standards are set up such that it will put children on a learning trajectory from birth, all the way through kindergarten.  That allows them to walk through the door on the first day and be prepared to learn the things they need to learn to be successful for the remainder of their educational career," said Bobby Cagle, the Department of Early Care and Learning Commissioner.
