Kindergarten is one of the most significant educational experiences of your child’s life. This ever-important year sets the stage for all future learning. Naturally, you want your child to be as prepared as possible.
Columbia Academy has developed a unique program for students with fifth birthdays that fall between September 2 and December 31, and do not meet the age requirement to enter kindergarten.The transitional kindergarten program is designed to give children who have already completed a four-year-old preschool program an additional year of preparation, providing the gift of time as they continue to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.
Transitional kindergarten students are challenged with kindergarten-level instruction in the core subjects of language arts, math, science, and social studies. They enjoy rich peer-to peer social interactions, role playing, and group discussion centered on social skill development. During this year, independence is fostered as students master foundational concepts needed to thrive in a kindergarten classroom.
