VICTORIA (CP) ó The wide-eyed, five-year-olds who start school this September in British Columbia could represent the last group of children attending kindergarten for only half a day.
The B.C. government is seriously considering offering full-day kindergarten beginning for the 2009 school year and itís also studying introducing optional early school programs for B.C. children as young as three within the next four years.
The government first floated the idea last February in its throne speech and since then, a months-long public consultation process into whether the province should go the full-day route has been ongoing.
