Resource website launched for Transitional Kindergarten

Submitted By Jennifer Kern

The Kindergarten Readiness Act is the California law that changed the kindergarten entry date so that children enter school at age 5. It also established transitional kindergarten, a developmentally-appropriate grade to serve those younger students with birthdays between September and December. As schools will serve the same number of students in transitional kindergarten that they previously served in traditional kindergarten, the law requires no additional funding allocation.

Preschool California's newly-expanded and revamped TKCalifornia.org launched on July 30, with expert-recommended transitional kindergarten (TK) resources, tips and sample teaching strategies. With approximately 2,000 TK classrooms opening statewide this fall, TKCalifornia.org will support both teachers and administrators in providing a high-quality TK experience during back-to-school time and throughout the school year.

TKCalifornia.org provides an overview of transitional kindergarten in the TK 101 section and enumerates features that make instruction successful in the TK experience section.
