KidsFlash Fast Fact – Enrollment in Full Day Kindergarten
In the 2011-2012 school year, 67 percent of Colorado kindergarteners (approximately 44,500 kids) were enrolled in a full-day kindergarten program. Quality, full-day kindergarten programs help young children continue the academic and social gains they began in preschool. Availability of full-day kindergarten varies widely across Colorado, with some counties serving all kindergarteners in full-day programs and others only offering half-day programs to all children.
