What is transitional kindergarten (TK)?
A transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. 

  • A child must turn 5 years old on or before September 1 to be eligible for kindergarten
  • Children turning 5 years old between September 2nd – December 2nd are eligible for Transitional Kindergarten and will still be served at our elementary schools in a transitional kindergarten classroom.
