The Oshkosh Area School District, in collaboration with several local child care centers, private preschools, and Head Start, seeks to provide enhanced early learning opportunities for young children beginning at age four. Our Ready 4 Learning program provides high-quality, free public preschool for all children who turn four on or before September 1 of the current school year. We provide special education services to children who qualify beginning at age three.
