What Do They Do All Day? Comprehensive Evaluation of a Full-Day Kindergarten.
Elicker, James; Mathur, Sangeeta
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v12 n4 p459-80 1997
Evaluated, over a 2-year period, a new full-day kindergarten, including documentation of program processes and outcomes from multiple perspectives. Found that compared to half-day students, full-day students spent relatively more time in child-initiated activities and teacher-directed individual work. Parents and teachers cited benefits of flexibility, more time for child-initiated creative activities, and less stress; students exhibited higher first-grade readiness. (EV)
