Welcome To MH4K

    ****Please note that the first day of 4K for the 2018-2019 school year is Tuesday August 21st.  The early start is to allow for an extended block of time during the summer of 2019 to make referendum renovations to the high school.****


    4K Enrollment for the 2018-2019 School Year

    Students who turn four on or before September 1, 2018 are eligible to attend our 4K program.  Our program runs Tuesdays through Fridays and we offer AM and PM sessions.     A link to our enrollment paperwork  can be found at the bottom of this page under Announcements. 



     Welcome to the homepage of the MH4K website.  Mount Horeb Area School District is proud to provide four-year-old kindergarten programming to all interested and eligible four-year-old students in the school district. Four-year-old kindergarten provides children with quality early learning experiences that lay a solid foundation for future success in school. Numerous research studies show long-term benefits for children who participate in high-quality early childhood programs, such as gains in cognition, knowledge, motor skills and language. Offering 4K through the school district ensures universal access to a quality pre-kindergarten program for all four-year-olds.


    Mount Horeb Area School District works collaboratively with four community child care centers and preschools to offer four-year-old programming. Participating sites include Agape Christian Preschool, Hearts and Hands Children’s Center, Little Vikings 4K & Childcare, and  Children's Community School. All 4K sites have highly-qualified, DPI-licensed teachers who work with the district on 4K programming.


    We have been working hard to create an enriching, developmentally-appropriate 4K program for children. If you still have questions after visiting our webpage, please feel free to contact Nicole Tepe, 4K Coordinator via email or at 608/437-7692.  We look forward to this new experience for our youngest learners.

  • Below you will find a link to the the 2018-2019 Mount Horeb Area School District 4K Student Enrollment packet, which includes several forms required by the district and/or the Department of Children and Families.  The following forms are due by March 1st:   the Student Enrollment Form,  the 4K Enrollment Addendum (in which a family  indicates their session and site preferences), the Home Language Survey, the Transportation Form, the Parent Input Form,  the 4K Health History, and the  Health History and Emergency Care Plan.  The Child Health Report and Child Care Immunization Report are due in Fall, but can be turned in earlier.    


    The student enrollment packet should be submitted during either of the Parent Information Meetings for incoming 4K families, where there will be a brief overview of MH4K and the enrollment and placement process.  These meetings will occur on January 29, 2018 and January 30 2018 in the Middle School Step Room at 6:30 PM each night.  The Middle School is located at 900 Garfield Street, Mount Horeb, WI 53572.  District personnel will be available to accept paperwork and verify documents.  If you are unable to attend either of these nights, you may enroll your child at the Early Learning Center - Main Office (300 Spellman Street) between 8:00 AM-4:00 PM Monday-Friday.  Please do not submit paperwork to specific 4K sites.  When submitting this enrollment packet, please be ready to present the following documents for district personnel review:

    • child’s original birth certificate and

    • a document verifying proof of residency within the school district boundaries. Examples of residency documents are listed on the enrollment form.


     The 4K enrollment addendum can be turned in once parents have determined their session and site preferences, following the open houses at the sites, but must be turned in by March 1st to have their preferences considered.

    A note about site placement....

    Parents have the option to identify the sites and session time they prefer when filling out the enrollment packet  by completing the 4K Enrollment AddendumWhile we strive to accommodate requests, we do not guarantee parents will get their top preference. MHASD will make final placement decisions.  Site assignments will be based primarily on previous program enrollment at a site and need for wrap-around services. Other factors that are taken into consideration include (but are not limited to) place of residence, special programming needs, transportation, available openings at the site requested, and site occupancy minimums. Please see our MH4K Placement Standard Operating Procedure for additional information about how we place students at our community sites.  Placement priority will be given to the enrollment forms received within the enrollment window.
