District 622 is proud to offer FREE all-day, everyday kindergarten.

The district has developed a successful all-day kindergarten model that is age-appropriate and provides our kindergartners with the essential building blocks they will need to succeed in school. The full-day kindergarten model is not just a half-day program stretched to fill an entire day. Rather it is a full-day curriculum, which has a proven track record of success.
