Transitional Kindergarten [TK]

What is Transitional Kindergarden?
Transitional Kindergarten is an early childhood education program that builds a bridge between preschool years and traditional Kindergarten. With increasing academic demands and structure in Kindergarten, some parents are aware that their children may not be ready for the traditional Kindergarten program.

Transitional Kindergarten is designed for, but not restricted to, students who turn 5 years old between September 1 and December 2 and who may benefit from an enriched foundational early childhood education program to prepare them for success in traditional Kindergarten.

Rosewood Avenue was one of 38 schools throughout the LAUSD selected as a pilot school for the implementation of a Transition Kindergarten (TK) program for the 2010-2011 school year and we are happy to build on that foundation.
