4-year-old kindergarten (4K) is currently offered at 10 sites in our community to all children living in the Menomonie School District who turn four years old on or before September 1st. The program is offered in a half-day format; morning or afternoon, (program hours vary by location and bus transporation) at area partnering sites. There is no cost or registration fee associated with our 4K program. However, there may be some school supplies and snacks that you will be asked to provide.
The community-based approach differs from surrounding school districts because the 4K centers are located in area childcare and preschool facililties rather than in elementary schools. Currently, there are ten sites partnering with our district and include: ABC'S Daycare & Preschool, Bouncin' Babies & Kool Kids, Leaps and Bounds Preschool, Little Sprouts Academy, Menomonie CESA 11 Head Start, Monkey Business Early Educational Community, SDMA-River Heights location, St. Joseph's School, Sunshine Learning Center, and UW-Stout Child and Family Study Center .
Each site has one or more teachers licensed in Early Childhood by the Wisconsin Department of Instruction. They help to build children's social and emotional skills, direct children's learning through facilitated play, helping them to acqurie knowledge in content areas such as literacy, math, science, the arts and technology. Instruction focuses on ways that preschool children learn best.
Registration materials for the 2014-2015 school year will be available on January 22, 2014, at the Administrative Service Center (ASC), 215 Pine Avenue NE; in the enrollment link below; or at any of the 4K partnering sites.Please note that all enrollment materials will only be accepted at the ASC only, starting on Monday, February 3, 2014.
