Half Day Kindergarten—the basics
Half Day Kindergarten is available to all eligible students at all District elementary schools (excluding Grand Ridge Elementary School). Because half day kindergarten is funded in Washington State by state and local dollars, there is no fee to attend the morning or afternoon kindergarten sessions.
Full Day Kindergarten—the basics
Full Day Kindergarten is an optional program provided by the Issaquah School District on a limited, space-available basis.
The program is funded by a tuition fee which covers the difference between the state-funded half-day program and the cost of the full day program.
While the curriculum is consistent in both programs, the full day program provides added enrichment and extended activities.
