Transitional Kindergarten Certificate
The Transitional Kindergarten Certificate consists of 24 units. More than 15 units should be completed at Vanguard University in order to receive a Transitional Kindergarten Certificate.
Any credentialed teacher assigned to teach Transitional Kindergarten (TK), or a combination class of Kindergarten and TK after July 1, 2015 will have until August 1, 2020 to meet an additional educational requirement of at least 24 units in early childhood education or child development, or both. All of California’s new TK teachers will need to meet this requirement. Students who are not credentialed teachers may enroll in this program. This certificate alone does not qualify students to teach TK.
