Statistics show that despite the recent decrease in the number of children enrolled in full-day pre-primary schools, the share of children enrolled in full-day pre-primary school programs remains relatively higher than the percentage of children enrolled in part-day pre-primary school programs in the United States as of 2013. Many parents work long hours or struggle between two jobs to afford child care, therefore they prefer full-day programs. A connection can also be made between the parent or guardian’s level of education and the type of enrollment (full-day or part-day) they chose for their children. The highest share of children enrolled in full-day pre-primary school programs in the U.S. was associated to parents or guardians with the highest levels of education . Parents with higher levels of education usually have jobs which require greater amounts of working hours and effort and are therefore deprived of time to care for their children.
