Transitional Kindergarten at RVC

RVC emphasizes the joy of discovery: students are encouraged to follow their natural curiosity, and are given the space and tools to explore their interests. The RVC approach fosters independence and collaboration, individual responsibility and a caring sense of community.

Transitional Kindergarten

In the 2022-2023 school year, we're adding classroom to meet the expanding needs of our Transitional Kindergarten students. Apply now!

Transitional Kindergarten is a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children who will turn 5 between September 2, 2022 and February 1, 2023. TK gives young learners a head start and the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that is tailored to meet their academic and social needs. 

 

At Ross Valley Charter, Transitional Kindergarten fosters independence and nurtures curiosity in our youngest students by providing a supportive atmosphere of play, exploration, and creativity. Students form friendships, learn to collaborate, and take their first steps in academic learning. Centered around social and emotional learning (SEL) and mindfulness, we create a positive first classroom experience for children and focus on kindergarten readiness.

 

The TK school day will run from 8:30 to 1:45, the same schedule as our kindergarten classes. Our TK classroom follows an age- and developmentally-appropriate inquiry-based curriculum designed to prepare your child for a full day of learning and activities. 

 

Students who enter RVC at the TK level are enrolled and do not need to re-apply for Kindergarten.
