As of now, it’s pretty much up to the parents to decide if their child will attend all-day or half-day. Not all schools offer Full-Day Kindergarten, some only offer Half-Day, and some school have a K+ program that students can attend in addition to their half-day class (for a price). But as of next school year, it’s not a choice if you are planning on sending your child to public school.
This is huge decision, and many parents are not only super fired up about it, but they are also quite divided on the subject. I wrote a post for Macomb Patch that answers this question:
Please leave a comment either here or at the MacombPatch. I would love to hear what you have to say about it. I would also be interested in hearing what Kindergarten is like in your community.
Have a great Thursday!
