Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is an exciting educational opportunity to prepare children for kindergarten. TK offers children with birthdays between September 2 and December 2 a developmentally appropriate curriculum taught by credentialed teachers from K-12.
Transitional kindergarten bridges the path between preschool and kindergarten and gives students the gift of time that will help them build a strong foundation for future school success. It blends social and emotional experience with academic learning, so that students not only learn essential pre-literacy, pre-math, and other cognitive skills, but also develop social and self-regulation skills needed to succeed in school and life.
TK is a win-win-win for children, families and schools.
- Children are better prepared to succeed.
- Families have an additional option to ensure their children enter kindergarten with the maturity, confidence and skills they need to excel.
- Schools benefit because children will be better prepared to succeed academically and less likely to be placed in special education or held back in later grades.
