New Concrete pad

We had a 30x40 pad pour in front of our garage yesterday, along with a 120 ft long sidwalk. The contractor said keeping the slap wet for a few days was a waste of time. However, I have ready many online articles saying that new concrete needs to be kept wet until it has fully cured. Otherwise, the concrete won't be as strong as it should be.

What say you guys? Any concrete contractors out there that could chime in? I've decided to keep it wet until I find out otherwise.
