**Transitional Kindergarten is a 4-day program and students will attend Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm.

***The transitional kindergarten classroom is a place where children who just miss the public kindergarten cut off can enjoy enrichment and where a child that is kindergarten age can refine skills before approaching kindergarten.  Kinder TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) have been used to create the curriculum and lesson plans for the Transitional Kindergarten classroom.  RDS has chosen specific TEKS in which to practice as there is no way we can possibly cover all TEKS.  This is because RDS school begins after and ends before public school, RDS school day is shorter, and RDS is not in school on Fridays.  

The transitional kindergarten classroom is NOT kindergarten.  –Notice for parents of children who turn 5 on or before September 1st-   Some school districts have rules about the grade in which a child will be placed based on their age.  It is the parents responsibility to check with the school district to find out requirements for the following year.  This is especially important if you’d like your child to enter kindergarten after their year in transitional kinder.  This notice does NOT apply to children who are not 5 on or before September 1st
