4 Year Old Kindergarten Program

Altoona School District 4K Registration for the 2024-2025 School Year Opens on February 6, 2024!

Our 4 year old Kindergarten program has a play-based focus, while preparing your child for Kindergarten and beyond. Our curriculum provides school readiness skills, social-emotional development, enriched academics, and school expectations.
