    Transitional Kindergarten is for children who are not currently in an early learning program and are scheduled to begin kindergarten in the fall of 2023. This program will focus on foundational academic, social and self-help skills to jumpstart qualifying students toward success in school. Students will be screened in December and may qualify based on need.

    The Transitional Kindergarten classrooms will be located at several of the elementary schools in our district. Sites will be determined based on enrollment.  Transitional Kindergarten will start in late January and will run through the last day of school, which is currently June 22, 2023.

    To be eligible for Transitional Kindergarten, children must:

    • be 5 years old by August 31, 2023
    • live within the boundaries of Everett Public Schools
    • not be currently enrolled in an early learning program
    • demonstrate academic and/or social-emotional needs through a screening process

    The screening is an assessment used to determine your child's developmental strengths and needs. During this time, your child will draw, count, name colors, jump and have fun! 

    If you are interested in Transitional Kindergarten, complete and submit the Interest Form no later than December 12, 2022.  Our staff will contact you within two working days for any additional information and / or scheduling your child's screening appointment
