HOLMDEL, NJ: After several years of planning, the Holmdel Township Schools, this year, launched its first Full Day Kindergarten program. Previously, the district had only funded a half-day program.
“It has been incredibly rewarding to be able to offer parents the kind of program that they’ve asked the district to put in place and even more rewarding to know that the program we have built is now providing our youngest learners an even stronger foundation for their education than our former program did” Superintendent Dr. Robert McGarry said.
Research examining the impact of full-day kindergarten found that children who attended a full day program had better academic outcomes the following year as well as more self-confidence.
The district welcomes all families with children turning five by October 1, 2020 to register their child for the upcoming school year. Registration for the 2020-2021 program is scheduled for January 29-31 at Village Elementary School. Information about how to schedule an appointment is available on the Village Elementary School website.
