Are there both half-day and full-day options in North Reading?

Yes, the half-day program is a “free-of-charge” program which is a 2 hour and 40 minute session, Monday - Friday. There is busing available for the half-day sessions. Depending on enrollments, a school could have both an AM and PM session. If this were the case, the sessions would switch at the mid-point of the school year. The full-day session is a tuition-based option. The full-day kindergarten is in session for the same length of the day as grades one through five. The full day kindergarten tuition directly helps support approximately half of all associated costs of the program.
