Full Time Kindergarten Expanded for Toronto Schools

The great news is that by fall 2012 an additional 900 schools across Ontario will be offering parents full time kindergarten, bringing the total number of schools offering this program to 1,700. The Toronto District School Board and The Toronto Catholic School Board have both increase the number schools with the TDSB gaining 99 and the TDCSB garnering 67. Young families and neighbourhoods will both benefit from this initiative as parents will now have full time access to early childhood education and Toronto neighbourhoods will see school facilities once again being used to increased capacity. Home Owners living in these neighbourhoods should see a increase in property values as these schools would certainly be favoured by families with young children.

In addition, if you ar looking for a great primary school check out my blog (Looking For a Great Toronto Primary School) comparing EQOA results for all of Toronto’s primary schools. This report is based on the most recent data as released by the Fraser Institute.
