Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK)


Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a stepping stone between preschool and kindergarten. The optional program provides students with an additional year of preparation, so they enter kindergarten with stronger academic, social, and emotional skills needed for future success in school. 

To be eligible to register for transitional kindergarten for Fall 2024, children must be five years old September 2, 2024, through June 2, 2025. 

Transitional Kindergarten programs have a developmental and age appropriate curriculum that gives early learners time to acquire school readiness, academic, social, and emotional skills needed for kindergarten and beyond. The curriculum model is based upon the California Early Learning Foundations, blending play based learning opportunities in the program and introducing State Common Core Standards in preparation for the following years in school. The program is 3 hours and 20 minutes long each day. The class sizes are 24 students plus a teacher and instructional aide for the 2024-2025 School Year.
