HALF-YEAR TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN NOW OFFERED!
If your child will turn five years old between Dec. 2, 2016 and Jan. 10, 2017, we have a special program just for your family. Our Half-Year Transitional Kindergarten program enables your child to become a part of a JK/TK classroom beginning Jan. 10, 2017 (second semester) until the end of the school year. These students will then go into traditional kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year. Our JK/TK classes are full-day and are taught by fully credentialed teachers specializing in Early Childhood Development. JK/TK students receive hands-on and age-appropriate instruction and are exposed to basic foundational skills in core academics, the arts and technology. These programs are free to Simi Valley residents. For more information, contact the Educational Services Department at (805) 306-4500, extension 4207. Or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
