Free Full Day Kindergarten For Medway, MA

This petition had 723 supporters

As citizens of Medway, we are asking for your assistance in pursuing free full day kindergarten for our town. 81% of MA communities have already implemented free full day kindergarten. Currently, only 6 students are enrolled in half day kindergarten, while the remainder of students either pay for full day tuition or attend another school entirely. In fact, a large group of Medway children are attending free full day kindergarten in other towns through school choice, which is paid for by our towns educational funds. 

Children in full day kindergarten receive on average, 50% more instruction than children enrolled in half day. The importance of early education for our children cannot be over emphasized. The most critical learning years of a child are the early ones. 

We are asking for the town of Medway to support this most fundamental educational cause by adding free full day kindergarten to the Medway school budget for 2018/2019 academic year. Full day kindergarten is a necessity for Medway to continue to provide the education we have been known for and deserve, the town is only doing a disservice by not offering free full day kindergarten. Please consider signing this petition for our town and our children.
