Important Terms to Know:
UPK – Universal Pre-K – the umbrella term that covers all classes of children who are ages 4-5. This includes public TK classes and private pre-k.
TK – Transitional Kindergarten– a class for children ages 4-5, with content similar to pre-k. Typically considered the first year in a two year kindergarten program. Historically, TK in public schools were open to children who turned 5 in the fall.
UTK – Universal Transitional Kindergarten – the new expansion of TK in the public schools, eventually allowing all four year-olds to enroll in this wonderful grade.
We at CKA (the California Kindergarten Association) often use the three above phrases interchangeably, but they do have slight differences.
Our UPK professional development series would benefit anyone who works with children ages 4 and 5.
