TK students must be 5 years old on or before December 2, 2020, to be eligible for enrollment in Transitional Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year.
Over the past months the Roseville City School District has continuously been evaluating the most up-to-date information provided by Federal, State and Local entities regarding COVID-19 as we endeavor to return to school and provide a safe learning environment for our students, staff and community.
One consistent successful factor in combating the virus has been the adherence to social distancing as much as possible. To lower class size and maximize social distancing for our youngest students, the District made the decision to follow California Education Code and limit enrollment into our Transitional Kindergarten program to students who turn five on or before December 2, 2020. Students turning five after that date will not be eligible for the program.
Transitional Kindergarten is available at the following school site for the 2020-2021 school year:
- Blue Oaks
- Diamond Creek
- Fiddyment Farm

TK represents a true bridge between preschool and regular traditional Kindergarten. Taught by a credentialed teacher with early childhood expertise, TK uses a unique, specialized curriculum that is based on the Common Core Kindergarten standards but is designed explicitly to support the social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of young 5 year-olds.
Transitional Kindergarten is the first of a two-year kindergarten experience for children turning 5 years old between September 2, 2020, and December 2, 2020.
TK gives our youngest Kindergarten students a head start in instruction and provides them with an opportunity to learn and grow in an environment tailored to meet their academic and social needs. TK is a free program within the public school system.
The TK environment includes many opportunities for social-emotional development, fine- and gross-motor activities, and oral language development for all kinds of learners, including those with special needs. RCSD’s TK program prioritizes purposeful, structured play, small-group instruction, and intentional teaching using hands-on, experiential activities. TK truly provides our youngest Kindergarteners with the gift of time, enabling all students to begin traditional Kindergarten ready to thrive.
