full day learning
« on: March 03, 2009, 04:25:42 PM »
From Child Care Watch, Winter 2009.

Full-day learning, a promise from the last election, can be a huge step forward for early learning and child care. The promise of $500 million dollars in new provincial spending could mean a stronger early learning and child care sector. But only if the program is properly funded and well planned.

In March the report by Dr. Charles Pascal, the Early Learning Advisor, will be released. The report will answer many questions on the direction and proposed models of full-day learning.  Check out our website after the report is released for a summary.

The Early Learning Advisorís Report is not the final word on full- day learning.

The report goes to Premier Dalton McGuinty and the Cabinet for final decisions. They will decide whether to accept the findings and proposed model. They will decide whether to keep the commitment of $200 million in 2010 with a further $300 million in 2011. They will decide what additional new funding will be available for capital funding.

As the early learning and child care sector, we will want to follow this process closely to ensure that full day learning is part of a well-funded comprehensive system of early learning and child care for all children Ė from infants to 12 years old.
