150th District Georgia Representative Winfred Dukes read to a group of Pre-K students Monday morning as part of the kickoff to Pre-K week.

September 30 through October 4 is the state's official Pre-K Week, hosted by Voices for Georgia's Children and its Pre-K Week partners.

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

"We know that early childhood education is critical to future success, and preparing for elementary school is an important part of life for a child from birth through age five," said Dukes. "We are thrilled to be honoring our some of our youngest learners this week, and proud of what our state is accomplishing through Georgia's Pre-K program."
