Early Education | Kenosha Unified School District

Early Education

The Early Education program serves children who are ages 3 and 4 years old by Sept. 1. It is comprised of multiple separate programs that have been integrated into one large program. Every Early Education classroom follows the Creative Curriculum System® for Preschool for instruction and incorporates Second Step® to address social/emotional growth in preschool children.

Early Education classrooms are multi-age where there will be 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds working together in one room. Classrooms located in the elementary schools may have children from multiple separate programs all in one classroom. The goal is to encourage parent involvement when children attend the program in their neighborhood school.
