The Gift of Time

“Transitional kindergarten is a school grade that serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten, functioning to provide students with time to develop fundamental skills needed for success in school in an age- and developmentally-appropriate setting.” Transitional kindergarten recognizes the differences between a child’s chronological age and their developmental age (Moran, 2015).
