My kids' school will have full-day kindergarten next fall. This is an initiative from Dalton McGuinty's government.
Almost 600 elementary schools across Ontario will be named Tuesday by Premier Dalton McGuinty as the first in the plan to provide a full school day for kindergarten children from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., plus affordable before- and after-school care, should parents want it.
I think this is fantastic, but it's exactly one year too late for me. My youngest starts grade one in the fall. I missed it by thiiiiiis much.
This makes up for the good luck I had in '93 when I was the last graduating class from Michael Power's original location near Islington and Bloor. They moved near Centennial Park in the fall of '93 and I had no interest in that extra commute west.
