Kindergarten: Does one size fit all?



Research shows the quality of the program is more important than the number of hours spent in kindergarten. If you have had doubts about squeezing your square peg of a child into the round hole of all-day kindergarten, or if you have confidence your child will be ready for first grade without a full-day kindergarten, consider the alternatives available.  State law doesn’t even require kindergarten, let alone require children to attend an all-day program. There are quality part-time alternatives, so be sure to consider what’s best for your child. There’s no reason your child shouldn’t love kindergarten!
