KinderCare Early Foundations® Transitional Kindergarten

A program for children who missed the kindergarten cutoff date.

If your child completed or mastered prekindergarten but did not meet the cutoff date for kindergarten, this is the right choice for you. Enhanced whole-group activities and project-related learning activities help engage children in key competency areas such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.

Transitional Kindergarten

Focus areas

Project-related learning activities in this program include an enhanced focus on higher-level skills from the developmental domains of Language and Literacy Development, Executive Function, and Social and Emotional Development. In each project-related learning phase, children are engaged in key competencies that ensure their success in kindergarten and beyond, such as critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. Project-related learning activities also align to higher-level skills from the other developmental domains represented in the Prekindergarten program.

Project journals

Your child will make writing and math journals, plus work with preprinted, project-specific journals that encourage skill development through writing, drawing and other visual representations such as photographs.
