Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program.  TK provides an early childhood education program that builds a bridge between preschool years and traditional Kindergarten.  TK is ideal for students who may benefit from an enriched foundational early childhood education program to prepare them for success in traditional Kindergarten.
 
ELIGIBILITY: Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is designed for students who turn 5 years old between September 2 and December 2 for the 2021-22 school year or between September 2 and February 2 for the 2022-23 school year.  See chart below for additional eligibility years.
