What is Transitional Kindergarten?

Transitional Kindergarten extends an opportunity for children to build a solid foundation for school success through play-based learning. Transitional Kindergarten focuses on providing opportunities for students to grow in areas such as pre-reading, pre-writing, early numeracy, and social skills.
