Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten

Transitional kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience.  Transitional kindergarten is designed for students whose 5th birthday falls between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2.  Transitional kindergarten provides opportunities for social-emotional and language development as well as basic mathematics and literacy concepts.  After year one, transitional kindergartners progress into a traditional kindergarten classroom for year two.  Kindergarten is open to all children who turn 5 by Sept. 1.

Families should register as soon as possible for TK and kindergarten as spaces fill up fast. Registration for TK and kindergarten take place daily at each elementary school. Families should contact their home school for more information. If you are not sure what school your child will attend, call (559) 457-3351 and district staff will help locate the correct elementary school based on your home address.

If a child is currently receiving special education services, please contact the Special Education department at (559) 457-3220.
