Transitional Kindergarten, often referred to as TK, is an exciting educational opportunity for children who turn five between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2. It is the first phase of a two-year Kindergarten program that uses age-appropriate curricula aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
Transitional kindergarten bridges the path between preschool and kindergarten and provides the gift of time that will give students a head start for future academic success. Transitional Kindergarten is taught by credentialed teachers who provide a curriculum that supports children’s social-emotional and language development, as well as providing a strong foundation for the development of academic skills. The TK curriculum integrates the California Preschool Learning Foundations and the Kindergarten Common Core State Standards.
