Full-day kindergarten offers children the best possible start to a great education. During the regular school day, children are involved in many different kinds of activities designed to help young learners explore, discover and grow. They will have opportunities to initiate learning and play, as well as take part in more structured play-based learning under the guidance of a teacher and early childhood educator. The teachers and early childhood educators are guided by a curriculum document based on the existing kindergarten program and research and other early learning curricula.
The Ontario Ministry of Education offers lots of resources and ideas to help you and your child get ready for full-day kindergarten. You can also find answers to other questions commonly asked by parents and caregivers, and view other resources.
