Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten is a developmentally appropriate curriculum that closely follows the guidelines in the California Preschool Learning Foundations developed by the California Department of Education. As part of a two-year kindergarten program, it is aligned with kindergarten standards and is taught by credentialed teachers. Transitional Kindergarten was created under the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 (SB1381).
