Kindergarten in Ontario establishes a strong foundation for learning in the early years for four and five-year-olds, provided in a safe and caring play-based environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of all children.
All Halton District School Board schools offer the Full Day Every Day Kindergarten model. In this model, children attend school full day, five days a week. Classrooms are staffed by a teacher and an early childhood educator.
