All Day Kindergarten Update

At its May 8 meeting, the Board of Education heard an update from the All Day Kindergarten Committee. In the state of Illinois, 79% of 859 districts are offering all-day programs, as of 2015.

 

“All Day Kindergarten educates the whole child in a developmentally appropriate manner,” said Lincoln Principal Jen Barnabee. “It enhances the legacy of Elmhurst by supporting students to reach their full potential. Children in full day classes excel in reading, number knowledge, writing and self-regulation versus their half-day peers. A full day program provides us the time to make the learning experience for our youngest students even better. They deserve the same robust, inter-disciplinary as the rest of our students receive.”
