Children Benefit from Full-Day Preschool Experience

Children who attended preschool for a full day were better prepared for kindergarten than children who only attended the same program for a half day according to a new study from the University of Minnesota.

The study followed 1,000 children in 11 public schools in Chicago. “We found that if you increase learning and instruction time within a high-quality program, you can dramatically increase school readiness,” says study co-author Arthur Reynolds.
