Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a new grade level that serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten and may be a part of the first years of a child’s life in California. The American Institutes for Research (AIR) released results showing the positive impact that TK has on student’s in several domains.

The study was supported by the Heising-Simons Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and First 5 California. The full report can be found on the AIR website:  Link

SEI works with several First 5 Commissions. To see more of our work related to early care and education click here.
