What is Transitional Kindergarten (TK)?
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children turning five-years old between September 2, 2022 through February 2, 2023. 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 program gives students an additional opportunity to continue to build their skills and abilities, social-emotional and language development, including mathematics functions through interactive, hands-on activities. Their time in TK will help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom, and confidently navigate the school day routine.


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.
