Even more four and five year-olds will benefit from the full-day kindergarten program in September 2012 in York Region.
Over 5730 local children will benefit from full-day kindergarten by September 2012.
To ensure these schools are ready to welcome students, school boards will receive funding for major capital projects where new kindergarten space is required and other minor renovations are needed. This funding will also allow boards to retain space in their schools that is used for other programs, such as child care centers.
These schools are in addition to the nearly 54 local schools that will offer the program by this fall. Parents can visit Ontario.ca\EarlyLearning to find out which local schools will be offering full-day kindergarten this fall.
Full-day kindergarten is the next step in the government’s Open Ontario Plan to strengthen education.
"Local families in York Region are already benefiting from full-day kindergarten this year and by expanding the program we are giving more young people in Ontario a stronger start and a better chance for future success."
~ Dr. Helena Jaczek, MPP Oak Ridges-Markham
"An early start on learning is crucial for future success. By expanding full-day kindergarten to even more schools in 2012, we are giving more children the opportunities and support they need to thrive."
~ Leona Dombrowsky, Minister of Education
