                          WHAT IS TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum which is age and developmentally appropriate.  The TK program is designed as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten.

The TK program was implemented when California changed the age requirement to start Kindergarten in 2010 under the Kindergarten Readiness Act.  Under this new law, children must now turn 5 on or before September 1st, where previously children could enroll if they turned 5 on or before December 2nd.   Even though this new requirement may seem small, California created the TK program to give children affected by this change to have the opportunity to continue to build their skills and abilities.  Research shows that children who attend kindergarten readiness programs such as preschool, TK or similar programs offered by public or private organizations are more likely to do well in school and attend college.

To qualify for the BUSD TK program your child must turn 5 years old between September 2nd and December 2ndFor the 2022/2023 school year student must turn 5 by February 2, 2023.

If your child does not meet the age requirements for TK or Kindergarten, please click here to see what grade your child will be placed when enrolled.
