Frog Street for TK: Golden Journeys Aligns with California’s All-New TK Program

Frog Street’s TK curriculum helps California educators incorporate joyful, comprehensive and evidence-based activities in their classrooms.

DALLAS (March 1, 2023) – Frog Street, an international leader in early childhood education, announces that Frog Street for TK: Golden Journeys is now available in California. Frog Street’s curriculum supports Transitional Kindergarten (TK) educators working to provide their children with a comprehensive, evidence-based curriculum designed specifically around California’s new Transitional Kindergarten requirements.

Quality early childhood education is a key factor in preparing children for success in school and beyond. Often described as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten, transitional kindergarten is an early childhood education program that uses a modified, age-appropriate curriculum to provide learning opportunities to children not yet eligible for kindergarten. California is now expanding its statewide TK program to support its youngest learners as they recover from pandemic- related setbacks. California’s TK program is being gradually phased in until it includes all the state’s 4-year-olds by the 2025–2026 school year.

“We look forward to partnering with educators across California to help create a strong foundation for growth in our young learners,” said Lee Ramsayer, chief executive officer of Frog Street. “The state’s investment in transitional kindergarten is a significant step in providing high-quality instruction to all, and at Frog Street, we are excited to be a key resource for educators.”

Frog Street for TK: Golden Journeys is organized around nine thematic units integrating key learning domains in literacy, mathematics, science, social-emotional connections, and STEAM. Frog Street’s curriculum is designed to meet the diverse needs of young learners while celebrating the joys of learning. The curriculum also includes access to a Teacher Resource portal which houses patterns, songs, videos, and digital images, plus books and Family Connection materials enabling educators to engage each child through music, movement, and mindfulness strategies.

Research shows that the most critical growth happens at the beginning of children’s lives. Ninety percent of brain growth happens before kindergarten, making it crucial that children receive intellectual and social stimulation to help build the brain’s architecture before entering a traditional educational setting.

More than 3.6 million children have enrolled in Frog Street’s programs over the last ten years, and educators across all 50 states and ten different nations have used one of Frog Street’s curriculums since the company’s founding 35 years ago.

Frog Street is hosting its Cruising the Country event in Anaheim tomorrow, March 2, through Saturday, March 4. The conference is designed for early childhood educators to connect with one another and develop skills they can take back to their classrooms. Participants will receive an attendance certificate for six hours of PD training. To register for the event, please visit this page.
