We are a State licensed Christian preschool for 3- and 4-year-old children, preparing them for kindergarten in a guided, play-based environment. We believe children learn best when they have opportunities to play, create, and explore everyday.
We offer 3-year-old preschool (Pre-K3), with part-time and full-time options. We also offer a half day 4K program with a wrap-around care option. The 4K program is from 8:00 AM-11:30 AM, and wrap-around care is from 8:00 AM-3:15 PM.
Our Extended Care program offers the option of before school care to all Pre-K3 and 4K students beginning at 7:00 AM. After school care is available from 3:00-5:30 PM.
More information about schedule options and the cost of tuition for these options can be found on the Tuition and Value page of our website. We also participate in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, which means that children who qualify for a voucher would have the option to attend our 4K program tuition free. Look for more info on the School Choice section of our website.
Westside Christian School offer a continuation of the child’s education into kindergarten as well. Prospective families are invited to schedule a tour of the school and meet the preschool teachers.
