About Transitional Kindergarten

  • Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program that uses a modified Kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. TK serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children who will turn 5 years old on or between September 2 and April 2 during the year they attend.

    Our TK Program is Growing!

    • Students who turn 5 between September 2, 2022 and February 2, 2023 can enroll in TK for the 2022-23 school year.
    • Students who turn 5 between September 2, 2023 and April 2, 2024 can enroll in TK for the 2023-24 school year.
    • TK is expanding to Dunsmore and Franklin Elementary beginning with the 2023-24 school year!
    • We are also adding an English TK class at Muir Elementary (Muir already offers Spanish dual immersion TK).
