Reinstate full day kindergarten for public school children in Beaumont

This petition made change with 103 supporters!

I started this petition because I will not be able to continue my University education next year due to the changes in the Beaumont kindergarten program. Having a full day of kindergarten provided for my child allows me to take courses that work around a full day schedule. If I am needed to drop off and pick up my child every day, a University course load would be possible through night classes and this would only extend the cost of childcare making education too expensivec to continue to pursue. 

In speaking with local dayhomes, there is concern that they will not be able to take as many children into their home as there are not enough seats in their vehicles to accomodate dayhome children as well as their own children for pick ups and drop offs from school. These families are relying on the dayhome income and are stressed about what September 2014 might mean for their household income needs. 

In speaking with working parents, there is a struggle to find childcare that can drive their children to school as well. It is hard to find a dayhome that is dependable and that can accomodate specific work schedules. A requirement to pick up and drop off students may force parents to quit their jobs due to a lack of availability. This may be a scary situation for local families that rely on dual incomes. 

Signing this petition means that you are in support of a need for fulltime kindergarten for public school children in Beaumont.
