4 YEAR OLD KINDERGARTEN

WELCOME!

Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Members,


Welcome to the School District of Fort Atkinson (SDFA) Four-Year-Old Kindergarten (4K) program. Our district has a history of exceptional programs for students, and we continue this tradition by offering an enriching experience for our youngest learners through 4K. The SDFA works collaboratively with local child care providers and preschools to offer 4K at Fort Preschool, Jefferson County Head Start, Kids Konnection, Parents Cooperative Preschool, Purdy 4K, and St. Joseph's 4K. Each site has a highly-qualified, DPI-certified teacher who receives professional development and curriculum resources from the district.


Our mission is to create a positive, enriching 4K program and to provide engaging activities for families. We believe that 4-year-old children should have the opportunity to develop socially and emotionally through developmentally appropriate pre-academic learning and play-based activities. It's my pleasure to welcome families and our youngest learners to the School District of Fort Atkinson. 4K is often the first step on a child's educational journey; I am here to ensure families and children have a smooth and comfortable transition into the 4K setting. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

Sincerely,


Penny Bright

4K Coordinator

4K: the building block for your child's educational journey

Here in the School District of Fort Atkinson our 4K Program is partnered with various local educational sites. Your child can attend either a morning session (8:00AM-11:10AM) or an afternoon session (11:50AM-3:00PM) Monday through Thursday; 4K follows the district calendar, inclement weather announcements, and COVID-19 guidelines. Some sites offer extended childcare (at the parent's expense). Head to the 4K Sites section to explore what each site offers!
