McGuinty extends all day kindergarten to 900 more schools

Premiers says program will improve post-secondary participation rates

Ontario’s Liberal government announced Wednesday that all day kindergarten will be extended to an additional 900 schools by September 2012. The program started last fall with 600 schools, with 200 schools to take part in September 2011, for a total of 1,700 schools by 2012. “A strong start in school leads to a strong finish — so more students graduate and go on to college, university or an apprenticeship,” premier Dalton McGuinty said today.
