    PROGRAM INFORMATION

    Our four-year old kindergarten program is a half-day.  Students will attend an AM or PM session for three hours.  Randall’s 4K program provides students a meaningful opportunity to be exposed to a variety of learning experiences.  We are a readiness program focusing on social and emotional growth.  Our curriculum is aligned with the WIMELS (Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards).  We include thematic units, as well as reading and math skills.  These experiences are beneficial to students and increase their success in five-year-old kindergarten.


    Overall, students become familiar and comfortable with school routines, increase their responsibilities, and build self-confidence as they prepare to become lifelong learners.
