The Full-Day Early Learning–Kindergarten program is a child-centred, developmentally appropriate, integrated, extended-day program of learning for four- and five-year-old children. The purpose of the program is to establish a strong foundation for learning in the early years, and to do so in a safe and caring play-based environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of all children.
The goals of the Full-Day Early Learning–Kindergarten program are as follows:
- to establish a strong foundation for the early years by providing young children with an integrated day of learning
- to provide a play-based learning environment to help children make a smoother transition to Grade 1
- to improve children’s prospects for success in school and in their lives beyond school
