4K Program

Elkhorn Area School District offers 4 Year Old Kindergarten in 3 convenient locations, Lakeland Little Learners is just South of town, Step Ahead is in the center of town and The Learning Curve is just North of town.

Our 4K program is for students that will be 4 years old on or before Sept 1st of the upcoming school year. Parents can begin completing the registration process by navigating to New Student Online Enrollment under the Enrollment tab. In addition, a special registration night has been planned for Tuesday, February 28, 2017 in the 6th Grade Pod from 3:30-6:30 p.m. If you are unable to enroll online prior to this night, the district will have the computer labs open and assistance will be available. If you have enrolled prior to this night, please plan on still attending. District staff will need to view your child's original birth certificate and any medical forms that are completed. Completed medical forms may also be uploaded into the online enrollment system. 

If you have any questions, you can contact the 4K Coordinator, Tammy Fisher or the District Registrar, Christine Dodge at 262-723-3160 x1428. 

Scientists state that by the time a child is three years old, 85% of the brain structure is in place. This time frame offers a huge opportunity to stimulate brain development. Research proves high quality child care programs produce positive short and long term effects for children. With these startling facts, it becomes obvious how important the early childhood years are.
