is going to be full time where I live in Canada. I am not thrilled about it as I find it will be too long of a day for my daughter right away, we'll see. What am I to expect in Kindergarten? when parents pick-up their children are kids to remain in class until parents show up? Is there still nap time?

All that would depend on the school. My middle 2 kids went to all day kindergarten. At their school it was 7:50am-2:20pm. There was no nap time. They had lots of free play time (their class room looked like a toy store exploded in there). It was a small school so pick-up was the same as for all the other grades. At the end of the day the teachers walked the classes out to the parking lot where the parents were waiting. You waved to the teacher and then your child ran to wherever you were standing.
Next year my youngest dd starts kindy and goes 2 full days and 1 1/2 day a week. Full days are 9am-3:30pm (my kids get on the bus at 8:25am and get home around 4pm or 1pm on half days).
