Kindergarten is a big step in your child’s journey as a life-long learner. We know that when you send your child through our doors, you are trusting us with your most precious gift. It is our promise to provide a warm, safe, and welcoming environment for your child. Our students’ success and well-being is our deepest concern. Learning in Eastern Carver County Schools is a personal journey tailored to each student.
