What are the advantages of a full-day, everyday kindergarten program? Recently the subject of full-day kindergarten was again in the news due to a legal opinion from Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann. Attorney General Dann opined that public school districts were no longer allowed to charge tuition for full-day kindergarten programs. This was an issue because some districts across the state were forced to charge tuition because of the costs associated with the program. This is not an issue in Norwalk because our district does not charge tuition for the full-day kindergarten program. The Norwalk City Schools have been offering full-day kindergarten for the last 3 1/2 years because we feel that this type of program offers significant educational advantages to our students.
