• What is Transitional Kindergarten?

    Posted by:

    Our district offers a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program for children who will reach the age of five between September 2nd, 2022 through February 2nd, 2023. The TK program is considered the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that focuses on preparing students for kindergarten. The program is a full-day program, with no cost to parents.  

    Our Transitional Kindergarten Program will provide the youngest kindergarteners with a readiness year that is developmentally appropriate and will better prepare them for success once they enter traditional kindergarten.

    No.  TK nor kindergarten is a mandatory grade.  However, children who attend TK and Kindergarten are more likely to thrive in school academically and socio-emotionally as they enter 1st grade.

    The TK program is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience.  After completing a year of the TK program, a student would then attend a traditional kindergarten program at their home school.
