Minnetonka Public Schools provides one of the best Kindergarten experiences in Minnesota. Our primary goal is to inspire in children to love learning through social and emotional teaching strategies. Our robust curriculum balances active, playful, hands-on learning with individual, small and large-group instruction designed to nurture early academic skills and promote social development.
Minnewashta Kindergarten Virtual Tour
Updated Group Plan for School Tours
Due to COVID restrictions, this school year, we are not doing our traditional school tours. Instead, we encourage you to do the following:
- Review the Kindergarten Options slideshow and Minnewashta Kindergarten Tour video, and
- Read through the documents and resources we’ve shared on Speech and Language Developmental Milestones, Kindergarten Brochure, Early Childhood Screening and Explorers Childcare.
- In addition, we’re happy to host a Google Meet follow-up conversation with you, to answer specific questions you may have about Kindergarten for your child. You can schedule by contacting Minnewashta Head Office Assistant, Carol Johnson at 952-401-5500 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Early Childhood Screening
This screening is required by the State of Minnesota for all preschool-aged children (ages three to five), before entering public school. If you have already completed screening through Minnetonka, you are all set! If this screening was completed through another district, please upload your child’s Screening Summary when you submit the birth certificate and proof of address during registration.
If your child still needs to complete Early Childhood Screening, register here.
Explorers (Child Care)
High quality before and after school childcare programs for children ages three through fifth grade.
