Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children turning five-years old between September 2 through February 2. It provides young learners a head start and the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that is tailored to meet their academic and social needs.
 
The TK curriculum is a blend of California Common Core Kindergarten standards and the CA Preschool Foundations for five-year olds. The TK program gives students an additional opportunity to continue to build their skills and abilities. Their time in TK will help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom, and confidently navigate the school day routine.
 
The TK class provides more opportunities for social-emotional and language development, including mathematics functions through interactive, hands-on activities, which helps students develop and build upon existing skills to be successful in kindergarten, and stimulating classroom centers, which focus on science, mathematics, writing, arts and crafts, community roll play, etc.

TK is part of the public school system and is free to participating students. Registration in the program is optional. Students attend the one-year program and the following year begin kindergarten. Credentialed teachers using the district-adopted curriculum teach transitional kindergarten.
