Every state has different rules regarding this,  Although, in many states, Kindergarten is not actually required.

Here in GA it's a full complete day, just like any other grade.  It's required.

kinder is not required in Texas; but if they are enrolled; they have to follow the same attendance rules as the other children. I think Kinder is great; and if your child gets it for free; then why not take advantage of it.

God Help Us.

Most people assume it is required when it really isn't.  Here is a link showing requirements by state.

Kindergarden is not required in Michigan or in Pennsylvania.

oh she is going to kinder this year. last year she went to pre-kinder and the year before she went to pre-k 3 at a charter school. too bad they dont offer the pre-k 3 anymore or ds would be enrolled there this year.
