4K is designed to serve children who are four years old by September 1st. These children attend their neighborhood school for their Early Education experience. 4K is also available in childcare centers that collaborate with KUSD. Collaborative centers provide the KUSD 4K program for a half day and then provide childcare before/after the KUSD program to meet individual family needs. Families that elect to attend a KUSD program located at the childcare center will need to pay for the childcare that is provided. 4K is available with limited enrollment in all of our elementary schools and nine local childcares. If you are interested in having your child participate in a 4K classroom, please contact your neighborhood elementary school or childcare center.

  • Purchase school supplies
  • Pay for a materials fee
  • Pay for breakfast/lunch(unless receiving free/reduced)
