The California Kindergarten Readiness Act established a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program for children who miss the September 1st birth date cutoff to enroll in Kindergarten.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a pre-Kindergarten program designed to build a bridge between early learning and Kindergarten. This program provides time for younger students to engage in early academic learning experiences designed to promote success in Kindergarten and beyond. Chula Vista Elementary School District offers a full day TK program at selected school sites. Students in the TK Program complete a full year in TK, and then a full year in regular Kindergarten before moving on to First Grade. Registration for the current year is on-going. Registration for the 2022-23 school year begins on March 2, 2022. Click here to go to our Enroll Now web page.
