ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

State representative Winfred Dukes visited Albany Monday morning to read to Pre-k students.

Dukes stopped by the Albany Tech Child Development Center where children gathered for story time. Dukes says Pre-k programs are essential when it comes to a students educational success. That's why keeping the program well funded is a legislative must for him.

"It really shows our commitment to the Pre-K program and childcare development," said Representative Dukes. "It is essential that we get to kids at an early age so that we assist in their intellectual development, so they will become better students and more productive adults."

Dukes is one of nearly 150 officials who
will visit some of the approximately 3,800 Pre-K classrooms located in all 159 counties throughout Georgia.
