The Tustin Unified School District offers full-day kindergarten at all elementary schools.
Full-day kindergarten greatly benefits TUSD students and offers a more relaxed atmosphere, opportunities for child-centered creative activities and developing social skills.
Extending the day allows for more time in each of the content areas as well as more time for art and music. It also allows time for students to engage in developmental activities that can be difficult to find time for in a half-day program.
Other advantages include higher achievement for all children, fewer grade retentions, more time spent in individualized instruction and less time in large groups, additional time spent in play and reinforcement of positive social behaviors.
It is believed by providing students with a longer day, they will have opportunities to increase their achievement levels and ensure they are best prepared for first grade.
For enrollment information, call your local elementary school or visit the TUSD website at www.tustin.k12.ca.us.
