Transitional Kindergarten Top of Page

Children who turn five (5) on or between September 2, 2020 and December 31, 2020 are eligible for Transitional Kindergarten (TK), the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program. Children who turn five (5) on or between January 1, 2021 and June 11, 2021 may be eligible for TK on a space available basis. The TK program runs similar to our Kindergarten program with AM and PM options. 

Sites offering TK will be determined based on total enrollment numbers. 

Parent requests for a specific site and time will be considered; however, if a student's home school offers TK, they will receive priority when enrolling. Please note, ALL eligible TK children will have a place for enrollment. 

Please read the information and follow the directions/steps below to register your child for TK.  FOR 2020-2021 REGISTRATION: All completed registration forms, along with supporting documents, will be turned into your child’s home school (confirm child's home school here - For Leaman Boundary families, you must select 'Approved 2020-21 Boundary' first before entering address). Leaman Elementary registration packets will be turned in to Lincoln Crossing Elementary.  Forms and documents must be hand-carried to school offices by parents, not mailed in.

If you would like more information about our Transitional Kindergarten program, please contact Scott Pickett at (916) 645-6350 or email spickett@wpusd.org.
