Welcome to Transitional Kindergarten!

The Transitional Kindergarten Program  is accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission for academic standards.  The program meets from 9 – 1 pm and follows the Columbia County school calendar. Children must have completed K-4 prior to entering TK.

Mission Statement

The Transitional Kindergarten program at First Baptist Church of Augusta is a program designed for children who have completed K4. The TK program is designed to promote the mental, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of children while preparing them to enter a full day kindergarten program.

Transitional Kindergarten Curriculum

Understanding that every child is different, we are excited to introduce a Transitional Kindergarten program beginning in the fall of 2023.  The program focuses on children who may benefit from another year of developing academically, physically and/or socially, before progressing to a public or private kindergarten program. A low teacher-to-student ration (12 per class maximum) ensures kids are receiving individualized attention.

Transitional Kindergarten is ideal for:

  • Children who need extra time to develop academically, emotionally, physically, and/or socially.
  • Children who have completed a 4-year-old preschool program.
  • ‘Young’ 5 year olds.

Our curriculum focuses on literacy, math, science and social studies exploration, as well as problem-solving and communications skills.  Classes are taught by a certified teacher trained in differentiating instruction. Transitional Kindergarten is Monday-Friday.

  • Music is incorporated in the classroom and also taught by a music teacher once a week.
  • Socialization is addressed through outside play time and informal classroom experiences.
  • Lesson plans include Bible stories and verse memorization. Students attend chapel once a week.
  • Students’ skills are monitored throughout the year. Conferences are held in the fall and winter as a means of discussing each child’s progress as well as continuing open communication between teachers and parents. A skill evaluation is completed mid-year to measure the growth of the child.

Transitional Kindergarten Registration

Students must have completed a K4 preschool program prior to registering for Transitional Kindergarten.
