Are You Happy with Your Child's Kindergarten Assignment?

Letters to the Class of 2024 went out to parents. Are you happy with the school assigned to your child? Was it your first choice? neighborhood school? Did you get full-day or half-day kindergarten?

Welcome to Raising Framingham, our new name for the Moms Talk Q&A feature, through which you and your circle of friends are invited to offer your opinions and advice about issues that are of interest to families.

Each week in Raising Framingham we invite parents (and grandparents) to debate an issue, ask a question, or become  part of the conversation on a specific topic.

Framingham Patch's Moms Council members will jump into the discussion or weigh in on a issue or help answer a question, as well.

As Framingham Patch is an interactive community new site, we want you to join in the discussion too. Don't be shy!

Parents: Are you happy with the school assigned for your incoming kindergartener? Was it your first choice? neighborhood school?

Did you get full-day or half-day kindergarten?

We are just concerned that she won't continue to thrive in a half day program as well as she has been in her current full day program. It sounds like the vast majority of the childern at Hemenway will be in a full day program, I hope that she doesn't feel that is is missing out on her schooling. (maybe she won't notice)

Does anyone know anything about the new before and after school program at Dunning--it is called Kidsborough? I just happened to look at the web page and saw some limited information about it. It looks like it was posted on June 9th and yet it indicated the orientation was the 8th and 9th. I am a new k parent (for the 2011 class), Dunning Full day. We are happy about the assignment and thankful for the full day but now perhaps a bump in the road as I am unsure what to expect about the before and after school program. Thanks!

Dana...There will be representatives from Kidsborough available at the the orientation on Monday. The Open Houses that were advertised were basically for families who have children in the existing program. I am sure you will get all your questions answered regarding Kidsborough and can guarantee you will be happy with the new program! They are terrific to work with!

Thank you so much for your quick response. We are so excited to be part of the Dunning community. I was just surprised at the switch and concerned I had missed something important. We are looking forward to orientation tomorrow. Thanks again.

I completely agree, Christine and I have called the PIC to let them know my concerns. We are one of the 13 unlucky families on the waiting list and I can't understand why, if splits exist at Dunning and Potter, why it can't be done at Hemenway, especially with more than half a class' worth of kids waiting.
