The California Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 changed the Kindergarten entry date and created a Transitional Kindergarten program for students whose fifth birthday occurs between September 2 and December 2 (inclusive). Pursuant to law, (EC 48000[c]), Transitional Kindergarten is part of the public school system and registration in Transitional Kindergarten is optional.
Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. Students attend Transitional Kindergarten for the first school year and then attend kindergarten the following school year. Transitional kindergarten is a full-day program.
Our Kindergarten teachers differentiate the instruction based on needs of all students, using developmentally age appropriate teaching strategies. All Transitional Kindergarten teachers have received training specific to the TK curriculum.
