For Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten, you will need send in your child's Chancy and Bruce Early Childhood Development screening results. Screenings are typically done in January and February at local preschools. If your child is not attending preschool or his/her preschool does not provide the opportunity for this screening, you will need to attend Stoneybrooke's screening date (typically in late March or early April) or schedule a screening appointment directly with Chancy and Bruce.

Transitional Kindergarten Readiness
Stoneybrooke’s Transitional Kindergarten is a half day program for children turning 5 years old between June 1st and December 2nd. It is a program that seeks to provide a challenging yet developmentally appropriate education within a nurturing, safe environment. Utilizing a Christ centered curriculum, students will be encouraged to learn and grow academically, socially, emotionally and physically. Class time will be focused on language development, beginning phonics skills and number sense, gross motor and fine motor development, and developing a growing understanding of God’s world.
The TK class is available for those young 5 year olds who are not yet developmentally ready for a full day academic program. This extra year provides them the "tools" necessary for kindergarten success. To start Transitional Kindergarten in September, the child must turn five by December 2nd. Families wishing to enroll their child who turns five after the December 2nd deadline, may do so as soon as he/she turns 5 years old and may register now to hold a spot. Stoneybrooke strives to limit the Transitional Kindergarten class size to 15 students.
