Full- Day Kindergarten in Wantagh
Full-Day Kindergarten is essential in Wantagh! Did you know that Wantagh is the only school district in Nassau County that only offers half-day kindergarten to its' residents? Research has shown that full-day kindergarten:
* Increased school readiness
* Promotes higher academic achievement
* Improves student attendance
* Contributes to literacy and language development
* Reduces retention and remediation rate
Our children are losing a critical opportunity to develop and strengthen foundational skills needed for success. They will be expected tp meet more rigorous academic benchmarks than ever before. 2 1/2 hours is not enough instructional time to ensure that our children meet the new Common Core State Standards. Please help us get full-day kindergarten implemented in the Wantagh School District. Thank you for your support.
