1) What is a Community Based Four Year old Kindergarten Program (4K)?
In a community based 4K program, four year olds receive pre-kindergarten instruction in a child care center or private/public preschool. A Wisconsin certified licensed teacher, hired by the School District, will provide instruction five days a week. The School District funds support the 4K program at the child care or private/public preschool site. Families may then choose to have their child(ren) participate in additional private pay child care or other services provided at daycare licensed sites for the rest of the day.
2) Is there a charge for the 4K Program?
Yes, $31.00 per child for 2013-14 school year.
