BUSD Transitional Kindergarten vs preschool
My son will qualify for TK next fall, and I’ve gotten conflicted advice about sending him to BUSD for that year (vs waiting until Kindergarten). I’d love to hear parents’ experience with TK, whether it is truly play based and developmentally supportive, or whether it feels early to send kids to a big public school environment. Has anyone had the experience of choosing TK over an additional year of private preschool and feeling either really great about the decision, or somewhat regretful?
From a logistical standpoint, does every qualifying child get into TK, or is there a waitlist? Should I have a backup option regardless?
