Curriculum Approach

All activities are planned around experiences that stimulate learning in all development areas - physical, social, emotional, and intellectual. Most importantly, all interactions and activities help develop a child’s self-image and a positive feeling toward learning.

Goals of our program are based on the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards.

Curriculum Goals 


2.5 Jumpstart Goals

4K Collaboration

Wee Know is partnered with the Kettle Moraine School District in a "4-K" collaboration. This means that families living within the boundaries of this district can choose to send their 4 year old to Wee Know for 4-year old Kindergarten. Families who do not reside in this district or in a district that offers 4K may enroll in this same program (2 to 5 days per week), but would have to pay privately. 

The collaborative 4K program is a 4 day per week program (M-Th) for 4 hours per day (9am-1pm). Wee Know's 4-K classroom will have a maximum of 20 children in the class with one DPI licensed teacher and one assistant teacher. Wrap-around care is available Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:30AM & 6PM for families needing additional hours.
