My son is just finishing kindergarten, our school district up till now has only offered a half day kindergarten program, they're currently trying to pass the budget in town and one thing that is in the budget is funding for a full day of kindergarten. I'm kind of on the fence about the full day, they cover the same material that any other school in the state covers except its 1/2 the time.
Honestly I think my son would of been so bored in school all day. He of course went in knowing everything except how to read, so that has been his only challenge this year. Time will tell for my daughter if I had to go by how she is now she'll benefit from the full day but she has 3 years before she starts so a lot could change!
As a parent how do you feel full day, half day, parents choice? I know a lot of working parents prefer the full day because of the challenges they face finding daycare for the half day but I'd like to leave that factor out of it.
