TK & Kindergarten
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 kindergarten teachers are committed to supporting the academic success of each student 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 year 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 February 2nd.
Available at all seven FVSD Elementary School sites, Kindergarten provides children with a rigorous learning experience driven by the 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.
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 February 2nd for the 2022-23 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. For the upcoming 2022-23 school year, Cox, Gisler, Oka, Plavan, and Tamura will be the home to TK programs, with the possibility of expansion to other campuses. FVSD's Transitional Kindergarten is also a full-day program. If interested in Transitional Kindergarten for the 2022-2023 school year please use this link to fill out the survey. Transitional Kindergarten sites will be based on interest and responses to our google form.
