How much time for recess and lunch do they get? Ds is on a waitlist for full day kindy at the local charter school because our public schools suck and they go to school from 8am-2:40pm and kindergarteners get recess from 10-10:20 and lunch from 11:53-12:28. So a 20 minute break plus 35 minutes for lunch. Is this typical?

We're homeschoolers. But this is what my bff's 5yo gets for full-day K. I couldn't believe it. 

My kids would be bouncing off the walls if they only got 30min to run and jump around. lol.

My son is in Kindergarten.. It's regular hours though.. I was unaware there was half day kindergarten (I know there's half day preK)

They play when the bus drops them off for about 20 minutes... Their recess time... and then from 2:30-3pm while they wait for the busses to get there..

lunch is 30 minutes.

                         


There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one.

My son is in K and he gets 30 minutes for lunch and 45 minutes of recess. The first half of the year they took a nap and 30 minutes of recess; now no nap and more recess.

My kindergartner gets on the bus at 6:45 and gets home at 3:15. I think they get a 40 minute lunch, they take a nap at like 1 then they wake up and eat a snack and get a break. They also play outside everyday that it's pretty and go to gym twice a week.

30 minutes for recess and 30 minutes for lunch at my kids elementary school.

The kids do fine with that. It is not like the are chained to their desks the rest of the day! :)
