Transitional Kindergarten discussion

What is Transitional Kindergarten anyway? Could it be right for my child?

Transitional kindergarten, or TK for short, is a form of prekindergarten meant for kids who are “young 5s.” The kids have either just missed the cutoff date to turn 5 for kindergarten — which varies by state but is typically on or around Aug. 31 — or won’t turn 5 until the very end of that academic year. Or in many cases, the students are actually kindergarten-eligible based on their age but parents have chosen to wait another year.

“It’s giving your child the gift of time where they can further develop social and emotional skills. And be able to learn through play which as research has shown is instrumental to their cognitive development,” says longtime Lincoln Nursery School Director, Nancy Fincke.
