Welcome to Upson-Lee Pre-K
Upson-Lee Pre-Kindergarten provides innovative and fun educational experiences that help develop the intellect and the imagination of four-year old learners. The program is designed to develop pre-academic and social skills that will allow these students to succeed in Kindergarten and throughout their educational careers. ULPK students learn to become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners.
Upson-Lee Pre-K is housed in a beautifully renovated building that was originally the James R. Atwater Science Building of the Thomaston City School System. The building consists of six classrooms with twenty-two students per class, a cafeteria, and a large auditorium. All classrooms have learning centers designed to promote various developmental skills in seven areas: Language and Literacy; Math Development; Science Development; Social Studies Development; Creative Development; Physical and Health Development; Social Emotional Development; Approaches to Play and Learning.
Parent involvement in the Pre-K experience is encouraged through Parent Orientations, Parent Workshops, Parent Fairs, Student/Parent Talent Night, Student/Parent Thanksgiving Luncheon, the VIP Reader program and more. ULPK provides a happy and loving first-year experience at school.
