I live in a suburb where we have the option to pay for all day kindergarten, to which we’ve sent two of our children. The school district makes a big deal of saying that there’s no difference in the curriculum between half-day & full-day kindergarten (we can’t say that they ‘learn’ more in full day because that wouldn’t be fair!) The kids in full-day obviously have an edge over the half day kids. I was at a kindergarten assembly two weeks ago and it was obvious which kids were in full-day and which kids were in half-day; the full-day kids were much more attentive, on task, and participative. This should be the priority right now in Ohio education!
