California's new grade level - Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first of a two-year kindergarten program that is developmentally appropriate and aligned to the Preschool Learning Foundations. Children eligible for TK are born between September 2nd and December 2nd. Bridging preschool and traditional kindergarten, Transitional Kindergarten (TK) utilizes a modified kindergarten curriculum taught by a credentialed teacher and is designed to provide an opportunity for the youngest five-year-olds to be successful in school.
