ABSTRACT
The article offers information on the benefits of full day pre-kindergarten programs in Texas and also discusses the problems faced by it. The study conducted by the U.S. National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER) revealed that children who appeared in a full-day program did well in literacy test compared to children who appeared in 2.5- 3-hour program. Though the full-day programs enabled continuous learning to children but lack of funding was out of reach for several districts.
