Early Childhood – Jr. PreK-Kindergarten

Our early childhood program offers flexible fullday and half-day schedules for Junior PreK (18 mos.+), 3K, 4K, and Kindergarten. Teachers use a unified competency-based assessment plan to share progress with parents within the five domains of the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards. In additional to literacy development activities, students learn and grow through art, music, physical education, and weekly chapel. Time spent outdoors is a priority.
