Transitional Kindergarten


Transitional Kindergarten

We are thrilled to be offering a new option for families in the South End/Dilworth community! In addition to our full-time child development center, we will now also be offering a half-day Transitional Kindergarten program with the option of full-day care.

Our program is an extension of Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church and serves the purpose of providing Christian love, care, and education for the children in our church and community. It is our philosophy that children are unique individuals created by God who deserves a warm and secure environment that promotes a sense of wonder and discovery in learning.

About Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is offered to children who have already attended a 4 year old program but need another year to develop socially, physically, or academically before enrolling in kindergarten. The TK program is a relaxed, fun atmosphere which encourages success. The program is designed to enhance developmental skills important to kindergarten readiness, such as visual and auditory perception skills, language skills, and fine and gross motor skills, and is taught by a NC certified elementary school teacher.

Enrollment Information

The program begins September 4, 2018- August 29, 2019. Class is from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Families needing full-day care may opt into care from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. and/or 1:00 – 6:00 p.m.

A hot lunch is included in the tuition. Children enrolled in before or after care will also receive a nutritious snack.
