Overview – What is TK?
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is part of the K-12 public school system and is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program. TK serves four-year-old students and is designed using age and developmentally appropriate curriculum for younger children. Children who complete TK move on to a kindergarten the following year, allowing a child to have two years of kindergarten experience before entering 1st grade. Newly passed legislation transforms TK into a universal program, with a roll out to all four-year-olds in the state by 2025, regardless of income.
