Start learning with us, beginning at age 4!

Welcome to the first big milestone in their academic journey! Entering TK is a big step for families. We understand how important it is to make sure your child is set up to succeed. In Vacaville Unified, our goal is simple. We want to spark an interest in education which will last your child a lifetime!

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is designed as the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. EC Section 48000 [d].

We encourage you to register your student by July 31, 2023 to help us determine our facility needs for the 2023-24 school year. Many of our schools fill their classes quickly.
