Ontario to Phase in Full Day Kindergarten Program by 2010

The National Post reports:

Ontario moved yesterday to expand learning programs for four-and-five-year old children, becoming the latest province to engage in the heated issue of full-day kindergarten.

Dalton McGuinty, Ontario's Premier, said the province would phase in full-day learning programs starting in 2010 and appointed an advisor to develop the programs.
The program is expected to cost 500 million over 2 years for approximately 250,000 children in the applicable 4-5 age range.

Currently, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec are the only Canadian Provinces that have mandated full-day kindergarten programs.
