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 August 24, 2015 and ends August 25, 2016. Class does not meet New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, Good Friday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the Friday after, and three days at Christmas.

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. In addition, drop in care will be available on a first come, first serve basis. Before and after care is only available on days when the TK class meets.

A hot lunch, prepared by our Church Chef, is included in the tuition. Children enrolled in before or after care will also receive a nutritious snack.
