Mission Statement

  The early childhood cross categorical, kindergarten and first grade class of Herrin Community Unit # 4 are an integral part of the school program, K through 12.

The kindergarten program is unique in that it is usually the child's first experience in an organized educational program. We attempt to give each child an education which is appropriate to his/her stage of development, will be immediately satisfying, and will be a foundation of readiness for learning experiences in the years ahead.

Our aims are to give guidance in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of each child. Attention will be given to the development of a healthy self-concept, positive feelings and attitudes and the expansion of natural learning drives.
