Welcome to 4-k preschool!!


Welcome to Four year old Kindergarten (4-K)  at Coon Valley Elementary! The Westby Area School District has a rich tradition of providing an excellent start for our youngest learners stretching back over 40 years!  


4-K Preschool Philosophy:

As 4-K teachers, we believe that all children learn in their own unique manner.  Our goals are to encourage a love of learning, provide opportunities to learn through play, exploration, and interaction with other children and adults and to create an environment that supports differences in learning styles and abilities.


A big part of our 4-K program is to find the strengths in each child and give them the opportunity to use them in daily experiences.  We believe that 4-k children learn best when they are provided an environment where play and exploration are the core.


Parents are a child’s first teacher and can also provide their child with daily opportunities for learning and experiencing the world in a safe environment.  Providing their child with appropriate health care, sleep, and nutrition ensures that the child is ready for learning.  A parent’s knowledge of their child’s strengths and weaknesses can greatly assist the teacher in providing the best possible learning opportunities.
