Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) has been available in Stanwood-Camano School district since the 2022-23 school year and is aimed at helping children who haven’t accessed pre-school to prepare for kindergarten. 

There are programs available at Cedarhome Elementary, Twin City Elementary, and Utsalady Elementary, but is open to all Stanwood-Camano students eligible, regardless of location of residence.

TK is a free, full-day early entrance kindergarten program for children who will be 4 years old as of September 1 at the beginning of that school year. 

Students are eligible for the program if they have not had prior access to early learning experiences and/or have been identified through a screening process as being in need of additional preparation based on academic or social-emotional deficits to be successful in kindergarten in the following year.  

The program begins in October. Classes are taught by highly qualified teachers, and transportation will be provided. Space is limited. The TK program is aligned with the Washington Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) to promote social/emotional competence in infants and young children. 

Our goal is to provide families with the opportunity to ensure their students begin their school careers ready for kindergarten. 

Students will learn the routines of kindergarten, colors, shapes, alphabet, and numbers, vocabulary, sharing and following directions in a school setting. Most of all, kids will have fun while learning!
