    What is Transitional Kindergarten?

    Transitional Kindergarten is a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children turning five between September 2, 2022, through February 2, 2023. It provides young learners with an opportunity for a head start to learn and grow in an environment that is tailored to meet their academic and social needs.  Our credentialed teachers will be using the district-adopted curriculum to support our youngest learners.

    The TK program gives students an additional opportunity to continue to build their skills and abilities. Their time in TK will help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom, and confidently navigate the school-day routine.

    The TK class provides opportunities for social-emotional and language development, including mathematics functions through interactive, hands-on activities, which help students develop and build upon existing skills to be successful in kindergarten, and stimulating classroom instruction with a focus on science, mathematics, writing, arts and crafts, and community role-play.

    TK is part of the public school system and is free to participating students. Registration for the program is optional.

    Kindergarten Overview

    During the child's year in kindergarten, he/she will be learning many things in the areas of academic, physical development, socialization, and emotional development. Academic areas will include math, pre-reading, science, and social studies.

    Math skills to be covered include grouping, sorting, patterning, numbers, shapes, money, time, and measurement.

    Pre-reading activities involve learning the letter names and their sounds, writing on a daily basis, and having exposure to a wide range of literature.

    Science concepts will be covered through a variety of units and might include areas such as animals, plants, weather, and include experiments and activities.

    The social studies curriculum will include concepts about community helpers and neighborhoods, and try to give value to all cultures and people.

    Children will develop physically through recess and physical education classes where they develop gross motor control and through manipulative activities to develop fine motor control.

    A large part of kindergarten is socialization, where we learn to take turns, share, use polite manners and understand how to work as a part of a group. Finally, your child will develop emotionally by displaying self–confidence and control.
