Our 4K Program

About The Program


Since 1979 the School District of Belleville has had a Pre-School or Pre-K program with the current 4K program starting in 2013. The Belleville 4K program uses the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards to guide planning of appropriate expectations, opportunites and assessment. Our students will begin the year learning about themselves, making friends, and getting to know their classroom and school.

Our 4K progam is located in the Belleville Elementary School at 237 W. Pearl St. Classes are held four days a week, Tuesday-Friday. The morning session will run 08:00-10:57 and the afternoon session will be 12:15-3:13.

Additional informaiton is provided in our 4K Handbook.
