About TK at CNCA

At Camino Nuevo Charter Academy, Transitional Kindergarten is a dual language program (English and Spanish) that sets students up for a successful learning journey in our TK-12 schools. We believe that every child is capable of learning and that children learn best when engaged in joyful experiences that promote curiosity, inquiry, and play.
Our talented TK teachers are dedicated to connecting with each child and partnering with families to ensure their success. 
We know the power of community-school partnerships and seek to make the school a safe place for all children and families. 
Our TK curriculum that aligns to the developmental needs of our students, meets them where they are and helps them realize their full potential.

Dual Language Program

We honor and value the diverse cultural and linguistic assets of the community we serve. We raise the status of multilingualism by grounding our program and instruction in relevant educational research and ensuring it is responsive to the evolving needs of our community.
We believe that a deeply effective and equitable bilingual education must be multi-faceted and integrated. It is aimed at amplifying the voice within our students while cultivating joy, pride, curiosity, and sociocultural competence. To that end, our students learn to read, write, and effectively communicate in both Spanish and English and our schools offer a challenging and enriching learning environment that fosters the necessary biliteracy skills for students to access the world beyond their scope and strengthen the upward trajectory of their lives.
