Full Day Kindergarten For All Public Schools

(August 28, 2011 )

Last year, the province introduced a full day kindergarten program that was implemented for half of all BC elementary schools.  Though the initiative did receive some concerns about fatigue for the children transitioning into full day classes, the program was met with an overall positive response.  Now, the full day kindergarten program is being rolled out to all schools starting next month.

Teachers and principals reported over 90% of children were coping well after the first 2 weeks, and all had adjusted well after 2-3 months.  A teacher in Nanaimo commented that her students were much further ahead in literacy development since the program was introduced.
