4K MISSION STATEMENT: 

We believe that 4-year-old children are entitled to an education that includes high-quality, developmentally appropriate practices, child-centered, play-based curriculum, recognizing and meeting the unique needs of individuals, partnering with parents, community, and businesses.

In inclusive classrooms, all children, are provided with equal opportunities to learn and engage in developmentally appropriate activities.  All children will be accepted and cared for by the adults and peers alike. All team members will develop collaborative relationships to provide the highest quality learning environment for all children. 

 

 

The SP4K program is a five-day a week program.  Classes are held Monday-Friday; SP4K students are enrolled and expected to attend five days weekly,  attendance is taken daily and reported to the school district. 

Your child’s enrollment in an SP4K program begins their public school attendance record.  Regular attendance supports positive student performance in school. SP4K recognizes this and follows Wisconsin Statute 118.16 and School Board Procedure JE-R, Student Attendance Procedures.  If students are absent or tardy, there needs to be an acceptable excuse for missing school.
