    The vision of the Kettle Moraine Four-year-old Kindergarten (KM4K) program is to provide access to quality early learning experiences to all students in partnership with families and the community. All students will be provided with a rich foundation and loving environment in order to prepare them for life long learning.

    • Ensure access to all children including those with special needs.
    • Children will enter 5K with the readiness skills to be successful.
