The Junior Kindergarten is a PreK program targeted at students who have already completed a 5-day preschool program and will be 5 years old on or before December 31, 2018. Priority placement in Junior Kindergarten classes is given to students who are committed to attend TCA Kindergarten. The academic pace of Junior Kindergarten is designed to be faster than traditional preschool but slower than Kindergarten. This is an all day program that begins at 7:45 a.m. and dismisses at 2:30 p.m. Class time is filled with creative and small group learning! Each student rotates through centers designed to encourage independent thinking.
