Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Program dates are extending!

For the 2024-2025 school year, tk is open to students who turn 5 years old between september 2, 2024 and JUNE 2, 2025.

Transitional kindergarten is one of the state of California's Universal Pre-K options, designed to give all 4-year-olds access to an early learning  experience.  TK gives children the “gift of time” to develop foundational behaviors, skills, and opportunities to promote success and confidence in kindergarten and beyond.

TK instruction takes place in a flexible, play-centered environment, attentive to the social and emotional development 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

In order to register for TK for the 24-25 school year, your child's Date of Birth MUST be between 9-2-19 to 6-2-20. Registration for TK opens March 1, 2024 for the 2024-25 school year. Parents are highly encouraged to begin the registration process online as early as possible. While TK will be offered on all school campuses, openings at each site are limited.
