The Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program and is designed for students who will benefit from experiencing kindergarten over an expanded time frame in order to mature and grow in all areas of development and learning. Many students who participate in TK will turn 5 years of age during the summer or right before the start of the school year.
The Christ School’s Transitional Kindergarten program provides children with an opportunity to learn in an enriching and academically challenging environment that nurtures their growth. The curriculum content relies on the same standards for a kindergarten program but provides for more opportunities to go deeper into concepts while allowing time for growth in social and emotional areas, language development and communication. Children are exposed to reading and math in an exciting, interactive way by using educational games to teach words and sentences, and to understand mathematical concepts such as counting and patterns. The social, emotional and academic skills children learn in Transitional Kindergarten help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom and confidently navigate the school day routine.
