On Our Way with 4K Today!
The children in the Howard & Suamico 4K Community Collaborative are engaged in highly interactive indoor and outdoor activities that encourage children to explore the world around them while learning important skills that will prepare them for Kindergarten.
To improve academic success and close achievement gaps, research heavily documents the benefits of an early learning program for children, the community and society. Empirical and anecdotal evidence clearly shows that nurturing environments with appropriate learning activities have large and lasting effects on children’s school success, their ability to get along with others, and their emotional health.
The Howard and Suamico 4-Year-Old Kindergarten Community Collaborative is:
an initiative that provides learning opportunities through play-based instruction for all four-year-old children in the Howard and Suamico communities;
taught by licensed Department of Public Instruction teachers;
offered to children who are four years old on or before September 1 of each year;
a community collaborative approach where the 4K school experience takes place at area preschool and daycare sites within both villages;
offered four days per week for half day sessions;
funded in combination with federal, state, and local tax monies;
transportation is available for resident students to the partner site nearest your home.
