Parents of this kindergarten class at Bruce Junior Public School in Toronto had better start saving now for college or university.

 

"Almost 600 elementary schools across Ontario will be named Tuesday by Premier Dalton McGuinty as the first in the plan to provide a full school day for kindergarten children from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., plus affordable before- and after-school care, should parents want it.

The first year of the program should benefit roughly 35,000 children ages 4 and 5."

The Premier will announce 71 Toronto area schools that will host this program in the first year.  You will be able to check the list to see what schools in your community will also offer the program.

If your child care program is in a school that is part of phase one ie. this September, please call us or send us an email as we want to work with you to ensure that your child care centre is able to manage this transition and still be viable.
