Transitional Kindergarten 

Admissions

 

  • Our Transitional Kindergarten program is the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program.

  • It allows our youngest scholars (4 years old by September 1) to begin their academic career here at St. Nicholas

  • Children will be better prepared to succeed in kindergarten and beyond because TK sets the foundation and gives parents an additional option to help their children enter kindergarten with the maturity and skills needed to excel.

  • A year of kindergarten readiness (TK) provides a strong, early start to help children read proficiently by third grade - a critical milestone, which predicts whether a student will graduate from high school.

Requirements:
  • Students must be 4 years old by September 1st

  • Students must have previous preschool experience

TK Facts:
  • TK follows a prescribed curriculum to prepare students to enter kindergarten

  • Students are fully incorporated into the St. Nicholas School community where they will utilize school facilities, the hot lunch program, school calendar, schedule, etc. and will participate in school functions, including Assembly, Mass, Christmas Concert, Pep Rallies and many other new experiences

  • Students will wear a uniform

  • Students are taught by one credentialed teacher and an Instructional Assistant with Early Childhood Education experience
