Full Day Kindergarten
This petition made change with 90 supporters!
Most north shore suburbs are making the transition to full day Kindergarten and Glencoe needs to do the same.
The research is clear. Full-day kindergartners:
do better with the transition to first grade, show significant gains in school socialization and are equipped with stronger learning skills
have higher academic achievement in later grades
have better attendance in kindergarten and through the primary grades
show faster gains on literacy and language measures when compared to half-day kindergarten students
have enhanced social, emotional and behavior development
have reduced retention and remediation rates.
Currently, families are cobbling together various alternatives to lengthen the school day, whether for purposes of childcare and/or enhanced learning. These enrichment programs require young children to transition to multiple teachers and school environments. Offering a full day option will allow children more time with their primary teacher during this crucial year of their development.
If you agree, sign the petition calling on Glencoe District 35 to offer full-day kindergarten!
