St. Martin of Tours school is proud to be one of three schools in our diocese offering a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) to our school families. Unlike preschool or pre-kindergarten, which does not offer a prescribed curriculum and falls under California state day care licensing, our TK is the first step in a two part Kindergarten program established by the State of California’s Kindergarten Readiness.
