Full-day kindergarten program disrupts childcare funding
« on: July 05, 2010, 11:38:56 AM »
Ottawa child-care centres have asked the city for $3.4 million worth of aid to help them adjust to the province's new all-day learning program coming into effect in September.

The problem: The province is giving the city a little less than $600,000 in funding.

That's why city council's community and protective services committee is recommending that council approve spending as much of the $1 million set aside in this year's budget as is necessary to deal with the shortfall.

It's the latest development in what has been a chaotic move to all-day learning that starts this September for 15 per cent of Ontario's four- and five-year-olds.
