Full day kindergarten could potentially be a good idea...if part of it was back to normal. Children used to have lessons outside, be given an opportunity to play and link their lessons to nature. Now they are stuck inside and they even have homework. Based on the changes the school system has seen already, it obviously would not go back to normal. They kindergartners would be expected to sit in a classroom all day with minimal recess, then go home and do hw. They would have barely any time to go outside and release all their built up energy which is something tons of them have. Also at this age they aren't developmentally ready for such a long day of working. They need time to relax and just be a kid.

Through instruction and play-based learning, children in full-day
kindergarten:
develop socially and emotionally through interaction with their peers
and the adults who teach and guide them
develop their capacity in language and mathematics
engage in healthy physical activities and the arts
The program has two components. In the core component, one
teacher and one early childhood educator will work together in each
classroom to help children learn during the regular school day. The
optional extended day component includes before- and after-school
programs led by early childhood educators.
