    Half day or Full day school for a 3 years old?

    I have not made up my mind whether to enroll my son to half day or full day school.

    any words of wisdom to share?

    our son starts in June and we feel 3 hours is more than enough for him at this age. U can start with 3 hours initially and then make it longer he s ok

    We opted for half-day. Then in the afternoons, certain days we just chill out and certain days we have other non-academic activities (e.g. Socatots, swimming).

    My son's 4 now... and I foresee keeping this arrangement until he starts P1.

    I agree with Neha. See how it'll go first. :)

    We did half days as well. Afternoons were for playdates and time with Mummy :)

    Half days for my 3-year-old, too. Afternoons as the others have said - play dates, swimming, quiet time, playground, etc.

    Thank you all for your input. Ideally I prefer half day. but as you may all know, I am working so hard to go back to work, and if I am lucky enough to get a job, it will be difficult for me to arrange as I don't feel comfortable to leave my baby to the DH (will get one as soon as I get a job). Life is not easy. :(

    we started our son in k1 when he was 3yr7m. we, too, kept the afternoons free. however, i am now thinking after having one year like this, that my son needs more. he LOVES going to school...and it would make life much easier if he was there longer....
