Our Program

Transitional kindergarten or TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. Pursuant to law, (EC 48000[c]), children are eligible for transitional kindergarten if they will have their fifth birthday on or after Sept. 2 through Dec 2 of that same school year.

For the 2019-2020 school year, children must have their fifth birthday on or after September 2, 2019 through and including December 2, 2019.

Our Mission

The mission of Transitional Kindergarten is to be a bridge between preschool and kindergarten. As the first year of a two-year kindergarten program, TK introduces students to rich academic experiences to better prepare them for kindergarten. TK provides a modified, developmentally appropriate curriculum in a play-based learning setting. Throughout the year, students experience a language-rich environment that emphasizes inclusion and social-emotional growth.
