4K Program

Mission Statement

We believe that every age-eligible child in Hartford has a right to high-quality, universally accessible and developmentally appropriate preschool education.

We will accomplish this through:

  • Developmentally appropriate curruculum that is discovery and play-based
  • By encouraging voluntary participation by families
  • Recognizing and being sensitive to the diverse needs within Hartford
  • Community collaboration that supports children a jump-start in school


The School District of Hartford Joint #1 4K program is a community-based program, in which four-year-olds receive pre-kindergarten instruction in a child care center or at private/public preschool site. The 4K program is five days a week, for two hours and forty minutes, daily and is taught by a Wisconsin certified licensed teacher, hired by the School District. Both morning and afternoon sessions are available, but not at all locations. Questions regarding the 4K program, registration or placement should be directed to Pupil Services at 262-673-8042.
