Westonka Kindergarten

  • Kindergarten students

    The kindergarten program offered at both Hilltop and Shirley Hills primary schools is all-day, every day kindergarten. Full day kindergarten is a state funded program and is free for all students.

    We design instruction for a full day, and no separate half-day program is offered. Our staff is experienced in helping young children adjust to a full day of learning; however, if you are concerned that a full day of school may not be appropriate for your child, please contact your school principal:

    Michael Moch, Principal
    Hilltop Primary School
    (952) 491-8500

    Scott Eidsness, Principal
    Shirley Hills Primary School
    (952) 491-8400

    Adventure Club, the district's school-age care program, offers optional supervised care before and/or after school. Hot lunch is available every day.


Parent Testimonial

  • SH Kindergarten Family

    “We could not be happier with our choice to enroll our kids in the Westonka School District. Westonka checked off all of our boxes: small class size, amazing educators, kind staff and challenging curriculum. The teachers genuinely care and are simply outstanding."

    —Catherine & Jeff Ottenbreit, parents of Augustus, class of 2031
