Fountain Valley School District wants every child to be prepared for success in school and in life, and our Kindergarten programs are designed to serve as the launching pad for those successes.  The District is proud to offer a very engaging, rigorous, and enjoyable experience for all children.  FVSD's transitional kindergarten and kindergarten teachers are committed to supporting each student's academic success by leveraging a rigorous, standards-aligned instructional program in classrooms that feature state-of-the-art technology.  In addition, great importance is placed on helping children navigate the first years of their schooling experience by supporting their social-emotional development.
FVSD offers two programs to help meet the needs of students, including a Kindergarten program for students turning 5 years of age prior to September 1st, as well as a two-year Transitional Kindergarten program for students with birthdays between September 2nd and April 2nd starting the 2023-2024 school year.  
Transitional Kindergarten (TK)
Transitional Kindergarten, or TK, serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children turning 5 years old between September 2nd and April 2nd for the 2023-24 school year.  It is the first of a two-year kindergarten program designed to build a solid foundation for success in school for "younger" five-year-olds. FVSD's Transitional Kindergarten program assists children in developing the academic, social, and emotional skills they will need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. FVSD's Transitional Kindergarten is also a full-day program.
Available at all seven FVSD Elementary School sites, Kindergarten provides children with a rigorous learning experience driven by California State Standards.  This program provides a structured learning environment that allows for both whole-group and small-group instruction, with an emphasis on differentiating instruction to meet the needs of each learner.  FVSD's Kindergarten is a full-day program.
