The Portsmouth School Committee voted in approval of a full-day kindergarten program on Tuesday night, reports The Sakonnet Times.
What do you think about this program?
We previoously asked this question on Portsmouth Patch's Facebook page.
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.
What do you think? Would full-day kindergarten be a good idea for Portsmouth schools? Tell us in the comment section below!
