The California Kindergarten Association Research Committee reviewed the literature on the topic of Full Day Kindergarten covering the publication period 1980 to the present. Combined with information from the 1994 Fact Sheet on All-Day Kindergarten published by the California Kindergarten Association, this paper continues to report the findings of researchers and educators throughout the United States. The literature consisted of comparative research studies, evaluation studies of programs, theoretical articles, and previous reviews on this subject. The Fact Sheet is designed to present the existing evidence, including objective research on this topic. We present the facts about full-day kindergarten in the form of summaries of this literature.
