Half Days?

My DD is due to start in Reception next week.

The late start (Thursday 12th September) I expected. But what I did not expect was three and a half weeks of half days. Shes not full-time until Monday 7th October! Is this normal?

Not only this, but I only got this info this morning after phone calls during the last two weeks of July to the school and emails all summer (I thought someone might be answering out of office?) and finally insisting that I need the information as soon as possible due to working shifts part time. The teacher I spoke to also got incredibly snotty at me when I suggested that perhaps they should have sent a letter to parents earlier. Was this unreasonable?

I actually would have preferred half days for a while ds just turned 4 and started reception last Tuesday. The arrangement was quite strange it was :
In school for 9 am
Pick up at 12.05pm and take home for lunch
Return to school at 1.10pm
Pick up at 3.15pm

It was rather annoying with all the trips up to the school, though he does start full time tomorrow.
