My twins will be entering kindergarten this fall. I have been debating for over a year whether I should have them attend the full-day kindergarten program where I work or if they should attend the half-day program within the district we live. I would like them to attend the rest of their elementary years in the district where we live. It is a blue ribbon school, thus it has an excellent reputation. The district where I work is struggling because it is located within a rural poor community. I would love for them to receive the benefits of a full-day program, but worry about them making another transition in the 1st grade. They are both rather introverted and do have some difficulty being away from me in new settings.
