 W  Waupaca 4yr old Kindergarten

Welcome to the Waupaca School District's 4 Year Old Kindergarten program.  The "W4K" program is both community and school based.  Community partners such as area preschools, private schools, and childcare programs provide District 4K classrooms.  Our W4K program is designed to prepare children 4 years old for success in transitioning into Kindergarten.  All 4K students must be 4 years old by September 1st.

In the spring of each year we schedule our W4K Orientation.  The purpose for this orientation is to provide information about the W4K program and enable us to provide necessary W4K services for your child's school beginnings.  This orientation will focus on Registration, Motor development, Concept development, Speech/Language development, together with a hearing, vision, and health screening.  We also host a W4K Open House each spring.  This Open House allows parents/guardians an opportunity to view the various classroom sites.  We currently have five (5) community/school sites for W4K classes, as listed below:


  • Chain O'Lakes Elementary, N3160 Silver Lake Drive, Waupaca, WI  54981
  • Headstart Waupaca, 101 Tower Rd, Waupaca, WI  54981
