All-Day Kindergarten (ADK) Program

In addition to the traditional half-day Kindergarten, District 200 offers a tuition-based All-Day Kindergarten (ADK) program. Parents interested in this program will receive information at the Kindergarten Round-up. Due to space limitations, All-Day Kindergarten (ADK) program is a first-come, first-served program. Online All Day Kindergarten (ADK) interest registration will be held on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, beginning at 8:00 a.m. After the initial deposit is paid in June, tuition is due on the first day of each month from August through April.  If fees are not paid within a timely matter, the child will be switched to the 1/2 day program.
