Buhler USD 313, is committed to partnering with parents to provide early education opportunities to all of our students. The academic success of children in later years depends heavily upon their kindergarten readiness. The first few years of education and preparedness are the most crucial to establishing a solid foundation from which can adapt to school systems and learn successfully. During this period, children develop primary skills that form the foundations reading, counting, and social interaction.

There is evidence that students who have caring adults in their lives, safe places to go after school, and constructive activities to absorb their interest and energy, stand a much better chance of avoiding trouble, succeeding in school and leading happier lives than those who don’t. -Colin Powell
