Why select Winneconne Elementary School’s 4K Program?

child paintingFocused on the individual child:

The 4K program teachers continuously fine tune our proficiency targets in the areas of math and literacy to ensure learners have the necessary skills to build on when they go to Kindergarten. The needs and abilities of each child are met on an individual or small group basis.  The success of our learners is dependent on hands-on learning opportunities tailored all year long to meet their  learning styles.

Highly trained teachers and support professionals:

The Winneconne 4K program provides enriching early learning opportunities provided by three highly qualified full-time teachers, and each teacher has both a morning and afternoon session. Full-time support personnel also assist students in each section, every day. 

Smooth transition to their elementary school experience:

Located in the elementary school, our students get to know our school and have access to the support of administrators, math/literacy coaches, and specialists. Our early childhood program is integrated within the 4K program providing all students an opportunity to work and learn beside same-aged peers.
