Transitional Kindergarten

Thank you for your interest in the Children’s Day School transitional kindergarten. Designed as the first year of a two-year kindergarten program, TK bridges preschool and kindergarten, blending approaches preschool teachers use with those kindergarten teachers use so that children on the cusp enter kindergarten with greater maturity, confidence, and skills, and are ready for the demands of kindergarten. Children who just miss the cut-off will benefit from a year of TK programming, and those children who just make the cut-off but aren't quite ready for kindergarten will also benefit from a TK program that movies beyond the preschool classroom in preparation for kindergarten. You can learn more about our TK curriculum here.

The application deadline for families interested in TK enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year has passed. If you are interested in TK enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year, please check back here after August 31, 2020 for information on our admission procedures, including tour and Open House dates, application deadlines, and other admission information. For enrollment in fall of 2021, TK applicants must be turning 5 between January 1 and October 31, 2021. If you have questions, please contact Diane Larrabee, Director of Enrollment Management, at (415) 861-5432 x322.
