4 to 5 year-olds
Fledgling students approach learning through exploring a variety of subjects and activities that develop key skills that prepare them for school success.
Skills for Success
As a bridge between Preschool and Kindergarten, Transitional Kindergarten (TK) promotes cooperation, teamwork, and communication as part of the learning process. Our students are introduced to academic structure while engaging with their peers in new ways.
TK is the first introduction to an all-day, academic program. Lessons become more structured, while also prioritizing play and self-discovery.
Teachers ease these young students into new routines, and track progress to guide them through the curriculum—at their own pace.
Lessons build each week, with the flexibility to adapt to students’ individual skills, interests, and needs.
Reading readiness is a focus, encouraging students to play with letters, sounds, and word association. Lessons explore:
- Phonemic Awareness
- Alphabet Knowledge
- Oral Language
- Literacy Play (songs, games)
What to Expect in TK

- Hours: 8:45 – 3pm

At Action Day, learning goes beyond academics. Our enrichment programs are designed to help students develop unique interests and talents—without ever leaving campus. They’re an opportunity for imagination, friendship, and self-expression. In TK, they can explore:
