Montessori -> TK?

We have our 4-year-old in a wonderful Montessori pre-school, and are considering sending him to Berkeley Transitional Kindergarten next year. We're hoping to learn from parents who've done that same transition, to see how the TK experience was. If anyone is willing to share their experience in writing or a quick Zoom, we'd be so appreciative. Thank you!

RE: Montessori -> TK? ()

My son went to TK at Cragmont pre-COVID-19. It was fine. I do not have complains. There is a bathroom IN their classroom. Because the kids are young, the district provides a teacher's assistant. I chose to go to TK instead of continuing with preschool for several reasons. 1) It was convenient for me because I had an older child at the same school and 2) it was near our home. 3) TK is free. Academically, there is no difference TK versus PK.
