NEW: HALF-YEAR TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN
If your child will turn five years old between Dec. 2, 2016 and Jan. 10, 2017, we have a special program just for you. Our Half-Year Transitional Kindergarten 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 go into traditional kindergarten in the 2017-2018 school year. JK/TK classes are full-day and taught by fully credentialed teachers specializing in Early Childhood Development. Students receive hands-on, 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.
