Enrollment for 2021-22 begins February 1, 2021
The Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District (CFAUSD) partners with McDonell Area Catholic Schools to provide a quality four-year-old kindergarten program. This collaboration makes services and resources accessible to more families, improves the quality of the programming, and supports the belief that the entire community is responsible for growth in our children.
4K teachers are certified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) in Early Childhood Education and use developmentally appropriate curricula to help children learn. The Creative Curriculum, Second Step, DECA, and Tribes provide a base from which appropriate practices for early childhood education are fostered and enable children to direct their own learning. The use of this curricular base also helps to build children's social and emotional health and well-being, and supports the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards (WMELS) which are Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction standards that align with K-12 learning standards.
Cardinals 4K follows the CFAUSD calendar and offers the morning sessions 7:45 - 11:05 AM and afternoon sessions 11:45 AM - 3:05 PM. District bus transportation is available for all children who do not use Supers I (wrap-around) care services.
Please contact our early childhood office to schedule a tour.
What is Open Enrollment?
The inter-district public school open enrollment program allows parents to apply for their children to attend public school in a school district other than the one in which they reside.
