Ages: 4.9 years – 6 years
The Discovery School transitional kindergarten (TK) bridges the path between preschool and kindergarten.
According to state law, a student must be 5 years of age in order to enter a traditional kindergarten classroom. A TK classroom is the appropriate learning environment for children who do not meet the September 1 age cutoff and for those children who would benefit from an extra year before entering kindergarten. Our TK program provides children with the gift of time that will help them build a strong foundation for the years to come.
In an intimate classroom setting and small class size, our transitional kindergartners are introduced to kindergarten level concepts at a slower pace in order to accommodate the various learning style of each individual student.
Providing children with a well-rounded and carefully balanced curriculum, TK students will prepare academically and socially while enjoying the nurturing preschool atmosphere they’ve grown accustomed to.
