Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is an early year kindergarten experience for children turning 5 years old between September 2 and June 2 of the academic year. Transitional K gives our youngest kindergartners an early start and provides them with the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment tailored to meet their academic and social-emotional needs.

California passed “The Kindergarten Readiness Act” (SB 1381), that changes the age when children are eligible to enter kindergarten. 

Transitional Kindergarten serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten and ensures that developmentally younger children are ready for kindergarten and beyond.

More information about our Transitional Kindergarten program can be found on the PYLUSD website.
