Actually, it's pretty easy to understand why Las Lomitas is not offering TK: 1) it's unfair to provide a year of free pre-school to only the oldest 1/4 of students, and 2) it's not the most effective use of taxpayer resources since all of Las Lomitas students already come to Kindergarten having attended pre-school.

Would be great to have kindergarten for 4 year olds. Kindergarten with 5 is too late and preschool for low-income families is too expensive.
