Hello! My name is Ms. Tilghman and I am a transitional kindergarten teacher here at Pacoima Charter School. Transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two year kindergarten program. Students enrolled in transitional kindergarten turn 5 between September 2 and December 2. Our transitional kindergarten program focuses on the development of the whole child. We develop academic, fine/gross motor and social emotional skills to give the children a strong foundation to take on the academic rigors of school in the years to come. If you have any questions about transitional kindergarten, feel free to contact me.
