Please share your experiences April 10, 2008

Districts in Washington state vary widely in how they handle full-day kindergarten, and we’d like to hear about your experiences.

Did you have to haul out your paperwork and participate in a lottery for a limited number of slots for your neighborhood school?

If you didn’t get a full-day slot, have you been left hanging for half-day kindergarten, not knowing until weeks (or even days) before school starts whether your kid is in morning or afternoon programs?

Or perhaps you had to select multiple “feeder” schools, with the understanding you might not be able to attend your neighborhood school?

Do you feel that Washington state should try harder to catch up with many other states on early childhood programs?

Feel free to share your experiences through the comments feature. Approval by the blog author is required , but mainly to ensure that random, offensive comments don’t appear. Parents with young children might visit this site, so we want to avoid unwelcome surprises.
