A Launch Pad for the Future

Transitional Kindergarten

The Transitional Kindergarten program is designed to give children who are not quite ready for Kindergarten an extra year to develop and become prepared for a successful Kindergarten experience the following year. Curriculum is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The Transitional Kindergarten class includes a combination of curriculum guides and workbooks from McGraw Hill, Super Kids and the Rowland Reading Program (TK). Enrichment classes include Science, Movement, Music and Chapel.

The curriculum is designed to develop mathematical concepts and skills and prepare children with a solid foundation in math.
  • Chapel – We present weekly topics that are relevant to each child’s daily walk with Jesus Christ.
  • Science – The science curriculum is designed to teach children about the physical world and develop the scientific method of questioning, forming ideas, making observations and drawing conclusions.
  • Music Appreciation – Students experience creative movement through action songs and singing games. They express the enjoyment and love of music through singing and playing instruments.
  • Movement – Students will be developing their large motor skills as well as learning about healthy habits.
