Full-day pre-K?

Question: Is there any chance of pre-K becoming a full day at B-P?  My daughter will be 4 this March and I would like her to attend pre-K at B-P, however, with it being a half-day program, we will not be able to manage it with our full-time work schedules. With a full-day pre-K, more families would be able to enroll their children, which is beneficial not only for the children, but for the school and kindergarten teachers as the children will be better prepared for kindergarten.

Answer: While I agree with your assessment of the benefits of a full-day pre-K program, unfortunately, at this time, we have no plans to offer full-day pre-kindergarten during the 2013-14 school year because of financial considerations.
