Transitional Kindergarten

Our Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students are those students who need an extra year of preschool because their birthdays fall between September 1 and December 31 or they are seeking a maturity waiver to delay entrance to kindergarten.

The TK program will:

  • Further develop social skills through cooperative play; encourage and support a classroom environment of Faith-based core values such as kindness, love, respect, and empathy; promote ownership/leadership through classroom “jobs.”

  • Encourage self-help/independence by becoming comfortable with independently completing arrival and dismissal routines; perform bathroom/hygiene routines independently; independently putting on coats, packing backpacks, putting papers in their folders, opening drink bottles/pouches independently, disposing trash, using basic table manners.

  • Further develop literacy by continued reinforcement of upper and lowercase letters; writing first and last name in proper Kindergarten format; sight words - 25 words will be introduced and reinforced.  The goal is exposure and beginning retention.  These words are consistent with those taught in Kindergarten. Pre-Reading/Reading skills - learn the parts of a book, the role of the author and illustrator, making predictions about the content in a book prior to reading the story, checking for comprehension, identifying the conflict or problem in the story.

    • Introduce and reinforce math concepts through reviewing shapes; continue reinforcement of number recognition and counting skills; begin developing number sense --- making sets of a certain number; create and finish patterns; introduce tally marks as a way of counting.

    • Encourage opportunities to use science to enhance the thematic unit will be included.  Example:  mixing colors, growing sprouts, observing the transformation of the caterpillar to butterfly, weather patterns/seasons.

    • Introduce functional classroom Spanish vocabulary such as greeting, please and thank you, counting to 20, colors, etc.

    • Further the child’s music appreciation through finger plays, songs, as well as gross motor movement music will be used to enhance classroom themes.  

  • 5 day a week class, meeting on Monday-Friday from 9:30-12:30

  • Class is limited to 10 children
