Expanded Transitional Kindergarten Begins Fall 2022

  • Sonoma Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) will be expanding its Transitional Kindergarten (TK) programs for the 2022-2023 school year. TK offers children the opportunity to learn social skills, develop language and acquire the academic foundational skills necessary to succeed in school.   

    TK is taught by a credentialed teacher. The ratio of students to adults is approximately 12:1. This allows for children to receive the extra attention and help they need to become capable, confident learners. The program is a full-day program and after school care will be provided at no or low cost to families as needed. 

    For 2022-2023, students who turn 5 years old between September 2, 2022 and February 2, 2023 are eligible to enroll in transitional kindergarten.  Older students may enroll in kindergarten.  Three year old and younger four year old children may be eligible for our district’s preschool program.
