Loudoun County is the last school district in the region with no universal full-day kindergarten for its residents.
Feb. 28, 2014 Kindergartners Carter Murray and Sahasra Mogulla work on a classroom project at Creighton's Corner Elementary School in Ashburn, Va. Many Loudoun County preschoolers attend public kindergarten for half the day and private kindergarten for half the day. The county is the only school district in the Washington region that does not have full-day kindergarten, and many parents fear that their children are being shortchanged.
