St. Luke’s Day School Kaleidoscope TK

Registration Information

St. Luke’s Day School will not offer Kindergarten for 2020-2021. Instead, we are excited to announce our newest program…
Kaleidoscope TK, where children are ever changing, ever beautiful!

What does the SLDS Transitional Kindergarten (TK) look like?

Kaleidoscope TK is an opportunity for children who have completed PreK to play and learn together at SLDS! The program is designed to meet the needs of children who would benefit from more time for social/emotional and physical development, continuation of play-based learning, and expansion of readiness skills while preparing for their next steps in formal education.

Kaleidoscope has a depth of instruction that sets this class apart from our pre-school program. An emphasis on strengthening social, emotional, and higher order thinking skills, fine-tuning Literacy and Mathematics readiness, supporting fine-motor development, and working in small groups is essential for TK. Additionally, the curriculum includes Science/Engineering, Social Studies, Physical/Health Education, Fine Arts, Writing, Digital Technology, and Spiritual content areas. Our Kaleidoscope students receive the time and opportunity to practice the skills they need to go forward as confident, capable, and creative learners ready to make a successful change as they set forth into elementary schooling.
