Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

Oceanside Unified School District offers Transitional Kindergarten (TK) at all of the elementary school sites.

  • For the 2023-2024 school year: students turning 5 between September 2, 2023 and April 2, 2024
  • For the 2024-2025 school year: students turning 5 between September 2, 2024 and June 2, 2025

Students will attend a minimum school day for the first three weeks of school in August to allow students to gradually transition into the school environment. The teachers will meet once with each student/family in a one-on-one meeting during the afternoon. 

This program offers young learners a head start and provides them with a golden opportunity to learn and grow in an environment  tailored to meet their academic and social needs.

  • TK is taught by credentialed teachers with extra training.
  • TK uses a specialized curriculum based on California Early Childhood Frameworks and Foundations.
  • TK classrooms have a 12:1 student to adult ratio.
