Together 4 Kids (T4K)

What is T4K?
T4K is a voluntary child development program for ALL four-year-old children who reside in the Monona Grove School District (MGSD). Children who reside outside of the district may apply to attend if their home district also offers a 4K program. (see below for registration instructions) The T4K curriculum is provided by the school district and is the same at all sites. The curriculum is specifically designed to meet the social, emotional and educational needs of four-year-olds.

Where are classes held?
Classes will be held at Learning Ladder, other private preschools/child care centers and public elementary schools.

What is the cost of the T4K program?
There is no cost to families to attend T4K. There are additional costs for families who require wrap-around care.

Will transportation be provided?
Transportation will be provided by MGSD following their existing guidelines. If your child requires wrap-around care, we strongly recommend that you choose Learning Ladder as your 1st site option.

What are the hours/days of the week?
T4K will be held 5 days a week for 2 hours and 50 minutes a day (7:50-10:40). The program will follow the MGSD calendar with an additional 4-6 days off for teacher in-service.

How do I register my child?
Enrollment for T4K begins in February. The enrollment process differs slightly for District (Cottage Grove & Monona) and Non-District families:
