5 Year Old Kindergarten

Congratulations and welcome to incoming kindergarten students in the 2023-24 school year.
The incoming group of kindergarten students will be the high school graduating class of 2035. We are honored to be
your school system of choice and to partner with you on your child’s journey toward a college and/or career ready future.

Your child’s Sun Prairie 5-year old kindergarten is a full-day program located in one of our nine elementary schools: C.H. Bird Elementary, Creekside Elementary, Eastside Elementary, Horizon Elementary, Meadow View Elementary, Northside Elementary, Royal Oaks Elementary, Token Springs Elementary, and Westside Elementary.

Based on our school district attendance areas your child has been automatically enrolled in 5-year old kindergarten at our school for the 2023-2024 school year. 

If your child attended SP4K and your address has changed or if you do not plan to have your child attend our elementary school for any reason, please contact Cindy Schmitz, 4K Secretary at 608.834.6672.

If your child has a special health condition that requires more care or if you would like to talk to our District Health Nurse about health-related questions, please call Debbie Brown at 608.318-8106.

The Calendar-At-A-Glance for the 2023-2024 school year is available on our school district website at https://www.sunprairieschools.org/district/calendars-bell-schedules. Over the next several months between now and the start of the 2023-2024 school year you will receive more information about your school, ways to get to know your school better, and how to be ready for the start of kindergarten.

Watch for the following information:


  • Information about student health, immunizations and health forms needed
  • Summer School registration information for all incoming kindergarten students
  • Booklet on Preparing for Kindergarten


  • Information about an orientation event scheduled in August for incoming kindergarten students and their parent/guardian


  • 2023-24 School Supplies List

We Look forward to serving you!

Enrollment Information

The Sun Prairie Area School District has a simple process for transferring 4K students into 5K for the next school year. Students already in SP4K will automatically be enrolled in 5K at the assigned elementary school based on the current home address (see map). Families who are Open Enrolled into an SP4K program will be contacted by our Business Office about plans for 2023-24. If your child currently does not attend a Sun Prairie 4K site and plans to attend 5K, be sure to begin with the Enrolling Students page and go to "Begin the Enrollment Process" for instructions. Please call the 4K office at 608.834.6672 if you have questions.

In February, families will receive a welcome letter from your assigned elementary school. At that time, if there are any updates in your address or changes in your plans for 5K, the letter will include information about who to contact.

Requests for early entrance to kindergarten must be submitted in writing to Rick Mueller by March 1, 2023. Questions about that process should be directed to Kristy Thao at 608.834.6566 or email.
