The Diocese of Oakland has 16 schools with transitional kindergarten programs.
Catholic transitional kindergarten (TK) programs use a modified Kindergarten curriculum that is age appropriate. Students whose 5th birthday falls after the Kindergarten acceptance date qualify for transitional kindergarten.
Our programs focus on nurturing the child as a whole to foster independence, creativity, and a love of learning. Our curriculum integrates religion, fine and gross motor skills, sensory and problem solving, music, science, arts and crafts, dance and movement. We provide every child in our care the opportunity to create and learn in a caring environment. We teach concepts that include: number and letter recognition, colors, shapes, name writing, and skills such as patterns, sequencing, and opposites.
