4K and Preschool

Regis Catholic Schools believes that high quality early childhood education is extremely important for a child’s growth, development, and preparation for elementary school.

Our system offers 4 year old kindergarten programs (EC4T), 4 year old preschool programs, 3-4 year old preschool programs, and 3 year old programs.

The 4 year old kindergarten programs are offered through the Eau Claire Area School District at our Regis and Genesis Child Development Centers.

The preschool programs are offered at St. Mary’s Elementary School in Altoona and St. James Elementary School in Eau Claire.

4 Year Old Kindergarten

Regis Catholic Schools partners with the Eau Claire Area School District to offer 4 year old kindergarten in our two child development center facilities. Because we partner with our local public school district, faith-based programming is not offered during the 4K programming times. Direct contact information and registration information is available for each section detailed below.

Testimonials

Kendall Alexander, Class of 2022
"Catholic Schools is a huge part of my life. I have been at Regis Catholic Schools since preschool, and I couldn't imagine receiving my education anywhere else. Teachers are able to incorporate the moral truths of the church into their everyday curriculum, whether it's a religion class or not. We are able to pray at school before every class and with teams before sporting events. I am so appreciative for the opportunity and for my parents' decision to send me to a place where school is more than an education."
- Kendall Alexander, Class of 2022
Estrella Juarez-DePaz, Elementary Student
"I like my school because I learn a lot about God and I like to go to Mass with my classmates. Going to Catholic school makes me a better student because I have to study for tests and when I do well on them I feel proud."
- Estrella Juarez-DePaz, Elementary Student

Elizabeth Cerny, Regis Parent
"Regis Catholic Schools helps nurture each child's hopes and dreams and teaches them how to care for others and grow in their own faith. The teachers challenge their intellect by allowing them to fail and prasing them when they grow and learn how to accomplish what they didn't think was possible."
- Elizabeth Cerny, Regis Parent
