I agree that they are expecting too much from kids so early! Our district not only has all-day kindergarden, but all-day preschool! So my 4-year old would be expected to get on the bus at 7AM and return home about 4:30 (3 days/week). I think that's a LOT for a 4-year old.

But the school assures me that it's not a problem for the kids!

We've decided to send Ethan to preschool in a different district, where preschool is half-days. I have also found a private school in that district that still has half-day kindergarden. We're hoping to find enough in the budget to do that. It'll mean driving him to school, but we are willing.
