Appleton Community 4K & Local Preschool Options

Appleton Community 4K 

Appleton Community 4K builds a lifelong love of learning by providing safe and nurturing educational environments. We focus on age-appropriate concepts and academic growth in play-based learning settings.

Learning experiences are driven by each individual child’s interests and encourage creativity, curiosity, problem solving, and exploration. Student progress is monitored and assessed in areas that include Early Literacy Development, Mathematical Thinking, and Social and Emotional Development.
In Appleton Community 4K, we're playing, learning, and growing today... to lead, care, and contribute tomorrow. We'd love to have your child join us!
