TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN & KINDERGARTEN

Veritas offers two exciting Kindergarten options. Transitional Kindergarten is designed for children who are ready for a Kindergarten curriculum, but need a little more time to mature academically, socially or emotionally.  Perhaps your child misses the age requirement for public school yet demonstrates Kindergarten readiness. The Veritas Transitional K offers children with birthdays between September 1st and December 31st a place to be challenged with a full Kindergarten curriculum.  The Transitional K is also a great fit if your child is eligible for Kindergarten with a May through August birthday, but would benefit developmentally from having a little more time to mature.  Our curriculum offers a true Kindergarten, with more playtime, positive socialization, hands-on-learning, all while developing basic Kindergarten readiness. After a year of Transitional Kindergarten, our students either go on to a public school 1st grade, or into our Kindergarten program, which offers 1st Grade Reading, Writing and Math.
