Kenosha County knows the importance of education beginning well before Kindergarten. Our community is large enough to have a wide variety of early education opportunities, including public 4K, public and private daycare centers, and preschools and parochial, Montessori, charter, and specialty learning environments. Yet it’s small enough to make early education convenient for your daily life, no matter what your choice.
