I am just curious, does anyone else have to pay for full day kinder? I live in Arizona and all the schools I have looked into are charging 150 to 250 for full day kinder, half day is free but I see more benefits from full day.

 I live in Quebec Canada.  We pay for our girls to go to English school, which is taught bi-lingual.  Hubby and I pay 170.00 for DD2 going to grade 2 and 190.00 for DD3, going to kindy in sept.  plus we have to buy a list of supplies, and both are in uniform colors. swimming lessons are included in the school fees.

 We live in a small town in Texas and the kids start here at age 3 by Sept. 1st.  They go to Pre-k 3 and then Pre-k 4 both half days unless the child is delayed. It is free. Then they go to Kinder at age 5 by Sept. 1st. It is also free and full day.

They learn to read the level 1 and 2 books found at the library. Also they can do simple math with numbers under 100. and count by 2, 5 and 10. My dd also learned mutiplication facts for the numbers 1, 2 and 5. 

 Her school day includes gym, music, art, computers and recess as well as all academics. She is there from 7:30 am till 3:15 pm.

My school district had this up until the year my daughter actually went to kinder.  Unfortunately they didn't announce it until March of that year.  I was so against sending my to a half day program that I looked into a private school closer to my business.  I ended up sending her there because if she went to public in my town, half day or not, i would have had to pay more money to send her to daycare for before and after school care.

here in Ohio it depends on your district and what they offer- where my kids go, all they have is full day. but in most other districts around, they only have half, but advertise a "supplemental" kindergarten (day care essentially I think) for the afternoon- which is paid for. it really means that they only get state money for your child to be there a half day, if you want the rest of the day you pay.
