Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

  • Transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience provided at all elementary and K-8 schools in our district. TK is offered to those students who turn 5 years of age between September 2nd and December 2nd of the year of actual enrollment. These students attend school daily from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Each class is taught by a credentialed teacher with the support of an instructional aide. 

    Research shows that transitional kindergarten builds positive relationships and impacts a child’s development and positive sense of self. Social-emotional development, science, literacy, math foundations, and fine and gross motor skills are provided in a nurturing environment where your children learn through individual, large, and small group instruction that is both hands-on and play-based. 

    We provide a program with components that lead to positive peer relationships, communication and problem solving skills. Our primary goal is to foster a love of learning that persists throughout your child’s school experience.
