Just wondering what are your thoughts on this? My 2 year old will start at the kindergarten when he turns 3 and I am trying to decide whether he would benefit more from coming home at lunch time, or staying till early afternoon. (so 4 hours vs 7 hours)
I really don't want to give him up full days yet.. but worried I will be holding him back if I don't send him full days. I am a childminder and take care of kids under 3 at home... when he turns 3 he will start at the kindergarten where he will be with kids age 3-6 and most of them stay the whole day.
I should mention that there is a lot of free play at the kindergarten as well as activities which are supposed to develop them. But not sitting at desks. So I am not worried about him spending too much time studying.. just wondering where he ought to have lunch and play in the afternoon--at home with mommy and the 2-3 toddlers I take care of, where he has spent the first 3 years of life, or with his friends. I would love to hear what you would decide.
