4K Community-Based Preschool Program

In collaboration with the West Bend School District, the Kettle Moraine YMCA is excited to offer 4K at four area locations. This optional program is offered at no cost to families who live in the West Bend School District attendance area. If you reside in a different school district, inquire at the West Bend School District about open enrollment. This high-quality program will be taught by certified, licensed teachers. The program will focus on early reading and math skills, language development, and social and emotional growth. All locations will offer both morning and afternoon sessions.
