Transitional Kindergarten

Calvary Day School is committed to meeting the needs of all of our students. In an effort to reach all of our students where they are in their development journey, Calvary identified the need for the addition of a full-day Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program. This program is specifically tailored to provide students with the “gift of time” before entering a formal Kindergarten program.

What is TK? TK is an all-day program that provides an opportunity to ease the transition from Preschool to Kindergarten while experiencing a longer day, lunch at school, and designated rest time. While academic objectives are similar in nature to traditional Kindergarten, with small class size and more individualized instruction, TK provides an environment conducive to social and emotional growth and maturity. This allows the “gift of time” without repeating a grade and/or curriculum.

There are many benefits to giving children another year to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and physically as well as increasing their executive functioning skills.

Students in the TK program will also be able to participate in the Calvary Before & After School Care Program, allowing flexibility for their family, if needed.  

Weekly Specials

Calvary offers a variety of weekly special classes in an effort to develop students in all areas. With the Transitional Kindergarten program, students will begin attending weekly specials mid-year as they become more acquainted with the all-day program atmosphere.
Specials offered include:
  • Chapel
  • Art
  • Media Center
  • P.E.
  • Music
To be eligible for this class, the student must turn 5 years old by August 1, 2020 or must have completed a four-year-old program. 

Tuition for the full day TK program is $7200 with a curriculum fee of $335.00. Variable Tuition is also available for families in the TK program. For more information and to apply CLICK HERE.
