morning or afternoon kindergarten?

Hello. I live in Illinois where I have a choice of morning or afternnoon kindergarten. What would you recommend? Where would you enroll your own children?

Depends on your kid. If you want them to get used to waking up and going to school, morning. If you want to let them sleep in a bit, afternoon. Both are fine, usually I found my pm class was calmer because they got to sleep in and play a bit before school.

Personally, I'm hoping my daughter gets into a full-day. I teach full-day now, and really like it!
i did my student teaching for morning kindergarten and loved it.... it was nice to have the whole afternoon to reflect on the day and get everything ready for the next day.

in general, kids are at their best in the morning. I, on the other hand, was never an early riser, so afternoon kindergarten was better for me. If I had to pick one to TEACH, I'd pick morning in a heartbeat.
