 Last Monday I registered DS for kindergarten. The school hours are 9:00-11:30. Monday-Friday.

Today I was at the gym pool with my son and started chatting to another parent. We started talking about schools and he told me his daughter goes to kindergarten ALL DAY. I have never heard of this before... and I am quite curious to know the kindergarten hours in your area.

Are the hours long because children are not progessing fast enough for elementary school? Or what?

My son's school is only half day... I'm starting to question this now.

They have full and half day kindergarten. I think it's mostly for working parents but maybe also a bit for educational wad start type reasons
