Four-year-old Kindergarten (4K)
Van Hise Elementary School does not offer 4K at the Van Hise School. All 4K Van Hise students are placed at Stephens Elementary for half-day 4K Programming.
Stephens Elementary School is excited to participate in the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) 4K program!
We are offering 4 half-day classrooms with instruction provided in English 4 days per week Tuesday-Friday. Each classroom will have 16-20 students.
In 4K, students learn through a play-based model that provides the opportunity for skill building and development in several areas including language, vocabulary, early literacy, and math skills, as well as social skill development.
The half-day schedule will include breakfast or lunch, exploration time for learning, small/large group instruction, outdoor play, and quiet learning/rest time.
Families in the Stephens attendance area can enroll online now. Contact the school office for more information about bilingual 4K classroom options (for native Spanish speaking families only) at nearby locations.
MMSD/MSCR does not provide “wrap around” or before/after school care for 4-year-old students outside of 4K instructional hours. The ECE sites that contract with MMSD for 4K may offer before/after school care. Please contact the sites directly for more information.
