Default School for 4 year old with IEP...

I have been looking at potential schools for my kids. My 4 year old attends full-day, partially inclusioned pre-k here in Austin. Looking at the websites, it appears that most pre-k programs under IDEA are only part time programs. Is that the case in districts that you know of?

The districts I am considering are Freetown-Lakeville, Taunton (mayyyyybe - their recent scores are actually pretty impressive, and I've read one positive personal account... but some bad, too), and a few in the Mansfield area: Mansfield, Easton, North Attleboro, Wrentham, Franklin, etc.

Yes, lots of half-day pre-K and K in Mass. I'm very skeptical about Taunton. Franklin and neighboring Norfolk are known as having very good schools.
