A TK or transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that ensures the kindergarten curriculum is age and developmentally appropriate.
- Students are only eligible for TK if they will have their 5th birthday between September 2nd and December 2nd 2018 (inclusive)
- These students will be in a separate TK class and will not be in a mixed class with K students.
The TK program will be a social constructivist program that is more developmentally appropriate to an early childhood setting. The children will carry out short term and long term projects that will be based on an adapted K curriculum. There will be a strong emphasis on social and emotional skills and preparation of readiness for the K program, including peer collaboration.
The TK students will also participate in art, music and P.E.
The TK schedule will be 9:00 am to 2:30 pm with early dismissal at 12:30 pm on Wednesdays only.
