Extended Day Option Kindergarten for 2011-12

For incoming kindergarten families, I want to let you know I am exploring the possibility of opening up more than one Extended Day Option  (EDO) Kindergarten program for the 2011-12 school year.

What is EDO Kindergarten?  It is a program that combines the traditional half-day kindergarten program with a half-day of fee-based day care.  This program has always been successful and highly sought after for King families who need to have a full-day program for their children.  It is also appealing because children stay with their teacher all day, even during the day care portion of the day.

How will the determination be made as to whether there will be one or two programs at King in 2011-12?  I am confident we will have one EDO at King in the fall.  If there is enough interest from families, we will open a second program as well.

Please note the deadline for applying for EDO is March 21, 2011. Paperwork should be turned into the Rec and Ed department.
