Lake Geneva Schools Announces New 3-Year-Old Preschool Program

Lake Geneva Schools announces the opening of a 3-Year-Old Preschool, Buzzing Bees, for the 2019 - 2020 school year. Buzzing Bees Preschool was established to provide quality early academic readiness, build a strong base around social-emotional well being and create a culture that will help foster pleasure in learning to young children.


Lake Geneva Schools believes that 3-Year-Old Preschool is about using play, social interactions and language experience to educate and help children grow. Buzzing Bees Preschool will focus on the specific developmental domains and standards that have been created for 3-year-olds in the Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards.


“We are thrilled to be offering a 3-Year-Old Preschool to the community. We are able to provide the best learning environment for these children with quality licensed teachers and caring staff members,” stated Superintendent Dr. Jim Gottinger.  Gottinger went on to say, “Through carefully designed learning centers and activities, these young students will be encouraged to explore, reason and grow, preparing them perfectly for strong achievement as they continue onto 4K with Lake Geneva Schools.”

The 3-Year-Old Preschool Program will be a morning program in which parents can choose to enroll their child for five, three or two days a week.  The program will have two locations: Central-Denison Elementary School and Star Center Elementary School. Central-Denison’s Preschool hours will be from 8:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Star Center’s Preschool hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.  Lake Geneva Schools has partnered with the Geneva Lakes Family YMCA to provide families with onsite wrap-around daycare from 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. for preschool through fifth grade. YMCA Wrap Around Care - Preschool and 4K Students - Daycare wrapping around the 2 hours and 45 minutes of Preschool or 4K YBase - Kindergarten - Fifth Grade - Before and after school care 

“Our partnership with the Geneva Lakes Family YMCA allows families the convenience of having one drop off and one pick up for students in grades preschool through fifth grade.  We have received feedback from the community that families desired all-day-care for their 4K and younger family members. With this new program, preschool and 4K families now have that option,” Gottinger stated.


Lake Geneva Schools is now accepting enrollment for the 2019 - 2020 school year. Any child who is 3-years-old on or before Sept. 1, 2019, can enroll in the 3-Year-Old Preschool Program for the 2019 - 2020 school year. This program is not state-funded and is open to both district and non-district residents.
