The Portsmouth School Committee is considering a proposal which would create a full-day kindergarten program for Portsmouth schools.
School committee Chairman David Croston says full-day kindergarten could soon become a reality in the district.
What do you think about full-day kindergarten being brought to Portsmouth? We asked this question on Portsmouth Patch's Facebook page Thursday.
Here's what several users had to say.
Marissa Randall: It's about time they considered catching up with the rest of the state!
Rachelle Sunderland Cook: Yes!!! My first daughter went to full day in Middletown - more hours of education!!
Christine Lineberger: It makes life so much easier on working parents but it is a long day for wee ones not accustomed to daycare/preschool. They should have full day with a rest/nap time.
Carolann Ferrell: No way they are still babies. They have to grow up fast enough.
Ben Dinsmore: About time. Half day kindergarden is great if you can afford not to work. Its a hassle for everyone else.
