The McGuinty government is rolling out full-day kindergarten to another 900 schools in Ontario by September, 2012, making the program available to almost half of the province's four- and five-year-olds.
The program, a centrepiece of Premier Dalton McGuinty's government, was launched last September at about 600 schools. Another 200 schools will be added next September.
"A strong start in school leads to a strong finish - so more students graduate and go on to college, university or an apprenticeship," Mr. McGuinty said Wednesday morning at St. Mary Catholic School in Toronto. "Full-day kindergarten is setting our children up for success - and it's making things a little easier for parents today."
