Subject: Please oppose all-day Kindergarten
Date: Sat Feb 27 23:30:54 MST 2016
I am the mother of a Kindergarten child and toddlers. I think all day Kindergarten is a good fit for some children and their parents (especially working parents). However as a stay-at-home mother, I would like that extra year with time to be teaching my own children.
Many children need that transition year of a half-day at school to adjust. I know of some children who have thrived in all-day Kindergarten, but others who have really struggled. To have that option in elementary schools is fine, but to mandate all-day Kindergarten for every child is simply not right!!
