Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Information
TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.  The program allows students the time to mature socially, emotionally, and academically.  Pursuant to law, EC 48000(c), a child is eligible for TK if a child will have his/her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2 (inclusive). TK is part of the public education system of Poway Unified School District and there is no cost to attend.

TK follows the same school year (start date, vacations, professional growth days, etc.) as the K-5 students except that TK is a half-day program and ends at 1:05 p.m. every school day at Creekside.  [Fee-based Extended School Services (ESS) program is available for TK students who need before and/or after-school care.  ESS hours are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on school days.]

TK Interest Wait List Information:  Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2020 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class:
  • Enroll your child for Kindergarten at your school of residence
  • Once enrolled, you will be given information regarding the TK Interest Waitlist
  • Please note: TK space is very limited.  Placement in TK is not guaranteed.
The following chart is helpful to determine enrollment in Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten.
Kindergarten 5th birthday Dec. 3, 2019 to Sept. 1, 2020
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) 5th birthday Sept. 2, 2020 to Dec. 2, 2020
Kindergarten OR Transitional Kindergarten
(if TK space is available) 
5th birthday June 1, 2020 to Sept. 1, 2020 (summer birthdays)

PUSD is aware of the amendment to California Education Code 48000(c) which permits districts the option to enroll students who turn 5 years of age after December 2 to be admitted to the Transitional Kindergarten program.  After a review of this option, our District enrolls only students who meet the cutoff date of December 2 into the Transitional Kindergarten program.
