Transitional Kindergarten

New Information coming SOON for 2021-2022


Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten is a free, full day early entrance kindergarten for children who are scheduled to enter kindergarten in the upcoming fall.  The program focuses on basic academic and social skills to help qualifying students get a jump start towards success in school.  Students must meet the age requirement, demonstrate academic and/or social-emotional needs, and cannot be currently enrolled in another early learning program.  Recruiting students occurs late Spring 20/21. Screening students for eligibility occurs in January and classroom enrollment is finalized.  The first day of Transitional Kindergarten generally falls on the first day of our second semester in late January/early February (February 2, 2021) and runs until the end of the school year.

What is the Transitional Kindergarten screening?

The screening is an assessment used to determine your child’s developmental strengths and needs.

What happens during a Transitional Kindergarten Screening?


During the screening your child may draw, count, name colors, jump and will have fun!  Following the screening, you will have an opportunity to talk about the results and to ask any questions about your child’s development.  The screening process usually takes about 15 minutes.

To be eligible for screening, children must:

  • be 5 years old by August 31, 2022
  • live within the boundaries of Sultan School District
  • not be currently enrolled in an early learning program
  • demonstrate academic and/or social-emotional needs
