Where I live, we have always had half day kindergarten. However, this year our school system came up with the idea of full day kindergarten, which at first, i thought was a good idea. They said that this option was completely optional, however, it would cost $15 a day!!! I forget the exact numbers but it was like somewhere around $250 a month! I didn't send my daughter to pre-school, so I though that full day would be good and i would love to send her, but being a 17 year old single Mom, I just can't see how I could afford it. Has anybody ever heard of this? Am I taking this the wrong way?
