Four Year-Old Kindergarten

Welcome to Cedarburg School District and specifically, to our 4K Program! Our 4K program provides you and your children:

ACCESS - 4K for every child!

QUALITY - 4K programming that is research based, developmentally appropriate and rich with meaningful learning experiences!

COHERENCE - 4K learning experiences and outcome that prepare each child for 5K and beyond within district elementary schools!

As a premier public school district in the country, our 4K program allows students to gain excellent preparation for the remainder of their school years and access to quality early education.

Cedarburg offers a half-day 4 year-old kindergarten program, five days a week at its three elementary schools - Parkview, Thorson, and Westlawn. Morning and afternoon sessions are 8:50 - 11:35 AM and 12:50- 3:35 PM. Enrollment in morning or afternoon session is determined on a case-by-case basis upon completing step 1 of the enrollment process, explained on the registration page. Parents may submit additional information they believe is important to the placement decision process through Step 1 / Online Student Enrollment.   All placement decisions will be made on/before May 26, 2017.

The first day of school for the 2017-18 school year for 4 Year Old Kindergarten is either September 5 or 6. We have a staggered start, allowing children to be acclimated in a smaller class the first day. Parents will be notified of which day your child will start.
