Transitional Kindergarten at Ivey Ranch
What is Transitional Kindergarten?
Transitional Kindergarten is the first of a two-year kindergarten program that builds a bridge between the preschool years and kindergarten. With the increasingly academic demands on Kindergarten, some parents wonder if their children are ready for the traditional Kindergarten program.
Transitional Kindergarten is designed for (but not restricted to) students who turn 5 between September 1 and December 2 and may not be socially, developmentally and/or academically ready for traditional Kindergarten.
This program will provide children with the gift of time to build necessary social, developmental and academic skills for success throughout their school careers. The program will be based on the California State Standards with focused instruction in literacy and numeracy along with strong emphasis on self regulation and social engagement.
