Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten logo What is Transitional Kindergarten?

Transitional kindergarten is a critical reform that bridges the path from preschool to K-12 and gives our kids a head start that will yield huge payoffs in future academic success.
  • Transitional kindergarten will offer children developmentally appropriate curriculum that is aligned with kindergarten standards. Classes will be taught by credentialed teachers from the K-12 system.
  • Existing funding for these children with fall birthdays will be redirected to transitional kindergarten and will be used to employ existing teachers and classroom facilities.
  • Transitional kindergarten is part of the public school system and is free for families.
  • The law allows for a child born after September 1 to still be admitted to kindergarten on a case-by-case basis if the parent or guardian applies for early admission and the school district agrees it would be in the best interest of the child.
