Transitional Kindergarten

Recognizing the importance of giving children the gift of time, we offer a Transitional Kindergarten program for children who turn five by December 1st. This developmental program is perfect for children that need more time to develop their social/emotional or academic growth.

Transitional Kindergarten is a comprehensive program which begins with a morning Academic Enrichment Session, packed full of activities which complement and support and truly enrich the afternoon TK experience. Our Transitional Kindergarten staff is dedicated to fully preparing our TK students for our rigorous Kindergarten program.

Enrollment for our Transitional Kindergarten programs begins with the annual registration process for the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools each March.
