  • I was born in 1974 and went to half day K. We also took naps. My daughter goes to full day Kindergarten (8:40-3:30) naps.

  • half day here.

    I have to say that our half day kids test higher by 2nd grade than the school my gf's kid goes to that has a full day. Half day is pleanty for a kid. AND the full day I just mentioned has nap time - wth??

  • Our area/state has full day kindergarten. My son's school goes from 8:25-3:30. They do not have naps and they go to a special (library, art, p.e., music) for 50 minutes each day.
