Moms Talk: The Full-Day K Debate
Join our Moms Council as they talk about a hot-button issue for Montgomery families: whether to send kids to full-day Kindergarten.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Moms, dads, grandparents and the diverse families who make up our community will have a new resource for questions about local neighborhood schools, the best pediatricians, 24-hour pharmacies and the thousands of other issues that arise while raising children.
Here's this week's question:
Half-day or full-day? That is the question on many parent's minds this week as kindergarten registration is soon underway in School District 129, which includes Montgomery's Nicholson Elementary School. The district recently confirmed that full-day kindergarten, as well as half-day, will be offered to all students regardless of ability. What should parents consider when deciding between full or half-day for their child? As a parent, do you have concerns regarding either option?
