More School Districts Offering All-Day Kindergarten

As more Michigan school districts offer all-day Kindergarten, parents are making the switch from half-day to full day.

Just like half-day Kindergarten, the curriculum in all-day Kindergarten includes creative arts, math, reading, computers and much more.

However, the difference is the amount of time the students spend on their tasks. If students find they want to complete a math activity, there is time to do that.

All-day Kindergarten is focused on the needs of the students. To determine the readiness of your future Kindergartener, school districts – like Waterford – arrange for its teachers to spend 15 minutes with each incoming Kindergartener.

The meetings allow teachers to assess the students and place them in classrooms according to their capabilities.

Introducing your children to all-day Kindergarten can help set them up to be successful in school for the rest of their lives.
