Free Full Day Kindergarten For Wayland, MA

This petition had 154 supporters

I encourage Wayland's Superintendent & School Officials to consider making full day kindergarten free. Kindergarten is where children enter into the public school system for the first time. This transition can be extremely overwhelming for not only these young children but also for parents. The Kindergarten programs are offered at the Elementary schools, so I believe that we need to consider Kindergarten the first year of public schooling not First grade. Most parents either work or want their child to attend a full day of school so they have the best chance of academic success during this pivotal transition in their young lives. As a fellow teacher and parent I believe we can always be working on improving our schools, policies and the well being of our towns students. Every child has a right to a free public education! Why can't it start with Kindergarten.

Thank you for your consideration
