In my province, Ontario (Canada), the government has been working on implementing full-day / full-time kindergarten for children as young as four years old.

However, the news media recently reported that only a "phase-in" is beginning this year. So, the implication is that most schools won't be at a full-day schedule for the school year beginning this September, 2010.

Where can somebody living in Ontario find definitive information on what schools will be offering the program before it is fully implemented? Is there a list of schools for 2010, 2011, etc. until the program is fully rolled out?

I expect many parents of young children – myself included – are interested in this information because it will affect plans for day-care, private-schooling, or after-school programs.

I have done some research on this myself, as I was curious when my school was going to add full day kindergarten... I have not been able to find a list that looks past September 2010. That list is available on the ministry of education's website - http://www.edu.gov.on.ca/earlylearning/.

You might try calling them directly, or the school that your children are most likely to attend to see if they have more information.

I found another good page, specific to my own region (Peel Region). It's at:

Region of Peel – Full-day Early Learning Questions and Answers For Parents ... Quote:

To find out which Peel and Dufferin-Peel schools will host full-day early learning programs beginning September 2010, visit www.peel.edu.on.ca and www.dpcdsb.org
...

I would therefore imagine that each region/county in Ontario offers similar information, and that the school boards themselves maintain the list of participating schools.
