Recent Study on Full Day Kindergarten in BC

The introduction of full-day kindergarten in half of B.C. elementary schools last year was a remarkable success, according to a new study, despite the fact the plan was hatched in a hurry and not everyone is convinced it was necessary.

“In my 40 years as an educator, I have not witnessed a major educational change so enthusiastically implemented by both teachers and administrators,” researcher Janet Mort, a former school superintendent, states in a report released today as the province prepares for the second phase of implementation, which will see full-day kindergarten offered in every public school in the province.
