    • Shirley Hills Primary School - January 10, 2023
    • Hilltop Primary School - January 12, 2023

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.

    “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."
