Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

The Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Program is open to students who turn five years old with birthdays between September 2, 2016 thru December 31, 2016.

TK eligible student MUST have a birthday between September 2, 2016 thru December 31, 2016.

Transitional Kindergarten is a two-year optional kindergarten experience that gives students the “gift of time” to develop foundational behaviors, skills, and attitudes to promote competence and confidence in kindergarten and throughout their comprehensive school experience. Students must be fully potty-trained in order to register for TK.

Transitional Kindergarten instruction takes place in a flexible, play-centered, and developmental environment attentive to the social and emotional stages of each child. The curriculum follows California State guidelines with a pacing that is developmentally appropriate while encouraging cultural and linguistic diversity.

For TK Enrollment

Registration for TK opens in March for the 2020-21 school year. Parents are highly encouraged to begin the registration process online with supporting registration documents submitted to your child’s home school. In-person registration is also available at your child’s home school. TK placements will be made by Educational Services.

**Note that not all schools offer TK, so your child may attend TK at a school other than their home school. In these cases, students will return to their home school for kindergarten--unless an Intra-district application is received and approved to continue at a TK site. 

Priority will be to place students at their home school, if TK is available. Otherwise, students will be placed at the nearest school with TK availability. Between March-May, home schools will collect TK registration forms to be placed at a site by June 1st.  After June 1st, students will be placed by Educational Services as registration forms are received.  In all cases, Educational Services will notify families of the student’s site placement.

OAK GROVE OFFERS DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAMS IN TK

 

Dual Language Immersion is a unique educational model where children learn to think, read, write and communicate in two languages: English and Spanish. Children who are educated in two languages have stronger self-esteem with more tolerance for, and more interest in, other cultures.

We offer two dual language TK locations:
Christopher for native Spanish and native English speakers
Del Roble for native Spanish and native English speakers.

This program is considered “a gift of time” for children to learn skills that will help them build a strong foundation for success in elementary school and beyond.
If eligible, please contact Teresa Flores at  tflores@oakgrovesd.net or Amy Boles at aboles@oakgrovesd.net

We are excited to offer the following locations for TK for the 2021-2022 School Year:

Anderson
Baldwin

Two-Way Bilingual Immersion @ Del Roble
