Bransford Elementary School is a early childhood center that serves children age three to five. The federally funded Head Start program has three classes of three year olds at the historic Bransford Elementary School. The Robertson County Board of Education offers seven classes of four year old children through the Tennessee Voluntary Pre-K Program. There is also one preschool class that serves students with special needs. This unique partnership among government agencies allows families in Robertson County the opportunity to enroll their children in high quality early childhood education that promotes kindergarten readiness through academic and social-emotional wellness.
