Early Learning Center


It is the mission of Emanuel County Early Learning Center  to prepare children for school by providing high quality early learning environments which focus on the development of social,  cognitive, emotional, and physical skills for a successful school experience.

Principal's Message

The Emanuel County Early Learning Center is really the start of something BIG! We are comprised of Early Head Start, serving children birth to three years old and their families, pregnant women, and Emanuel County Pre-K. Our Pre-K has two sites, Swainsboro Pre-K and Twin City Elementary Pre-K ready to serve your child’s educational needs.

Early Head Start

Early Head Start is the federally-funded program which provides services to infants and toddlers from birth to age three and their families and pregnant women in Emanuel County at no cost. The overarching goal of the program is to help families meet educational and/or work goals and become self-sufficient. Income eligibility is based on the federal poverty guidelines which are updated annually.  Families who are homeless, eligible for TANF and SSI, and children in foster care are eligible without income restrictions.


All Emanuel County children that are 4 years old before September first are eligible to attend the Emanuel County Schools Pre-K program.
