4K Registration for 2021/22 opened on February 1st

You are invited to participate in the Altoona school district 4K Program, a collaborative, community-based four year old kindergarten program. Altoona 4K is a play-based program designed to prepare your child for their educational career. We provide an enriched curriculum that provides school readiness skills and school expectations. We know that our children learn best through play and provide age appropriate activities in cognitive and pre-math skills, social-emotional, adaptive, literacy and language, and motor development. Our 4K program is a half day program (morning and afternoon options), 4-days per week during the school year. The program is designed for all children who live in the School District of Altoona who will be four years old by September 1, 2021. Four year old children who have been accepted for open enrollment will also be eligible to participate. (Not a resident? Check the Open Enrollment webpage.

The Altoona School District 4K program is provided at no cost. Transportation options are available.
