Early school times

I have heard that in some parts of Sweden there are experiments with later starting times for Schools, as they've found that young people perform better at other times of day.

I so wish my daughter's kindergarten had later starting times. The most enjoyable mornings are those when she and her little brother can wake up and have a leisurely breakfast and play a bit before we get dressed. On kindy days, that's not possible. It's rush, rush, rush and I see that the stress of that gets to her sometimes.

Oh, how wonderful it would be to have a kindy that starts at 10, instead of 8.
