TK Program Philosophy

  • The objective of the Turlock Unified Transitional Kindergarten program is to promote the acquisition of academic and life skills for all students utilizing developmentally appropriate instructional strategies and materials.

    TK is taught by a credentialed teacher with early childhood expertise. TK is the first of a two-year Kindergarten experience.  TK gives our youngest students a head start in instruction and provides them with an opportunity to learn and grow in an environment tailored to meet their academic and social needs.  TK is a free program within the public school system.
