A child needs to be five (5) by September 1st for entry into Kindergarten.  CWC provides transitional kindergarten to children turning five between September 2nd and December 2nd only.  Transitional kindergarten is a two-year program and at CWC, it is seamlessly integrated in to our regular kindergarten classes.  Our developmental and highly differentiated model ensures children are continually progressing.


If the number of students who wish to attend CWCSL exceeds the school’s capacity, enrollment is determined by random public drawing (lottery) in accordance with Education Code §47605(d)(2).
