    TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN PLACEMENT

    Transitional Kindergarten (KinderBridge) is a full-day program for children who have their fifth birthday between September 2nd and December 2nd. Class size will depend on enrollment, but will not exceed 20 students per class. This program requires a two year commitment. All students admitted to the program will be continued to regular kindergarten for the subsequent school year. At this time, classes will be held at Spring Creek Elementary, Madrone Elementary, and Francis Binkley Elementary. If your child attends a class that is not at your resident school, they will be able to return to the resident school for kindergarten the following year. All students entering Transitional Kindergarten will be assessed by staff during our kindergarten screening to assist with placement.
