Transitional Kindergarten


We're so happy to have the opportunity to guide your kids through this wonderful year of growth and development! Transitional Kindergarten provides a unique setting within which "Going on Fivers" can experience Common Core kindergarten academics in a supportive, developmentally appropriate setting. TK kids are exposed to all academic subjects they'll encounter next year in Kindergarten, while still getting the chance to do the real work of childhood, which is to learn through purposeful play. For more information on the purpose and place of TK, visit this page at the California Department of Education web site.
