In September 2013, approximately 184,000 four- and five-year-olds (i.e., 75% of all kindergarten children) are enrolled in full-day kindergarten programs across Ontario. At full implementation, it is estimated that 265,000 children will be enrolled in full-day kindergarten. The program evaluation aims:
1. To identify early indicators of effective practices related to the impact of full-day kindergarten.
2. To inform program delivery moving forward through to full implementation.
This report details evaluation methodology, results and interpretations with respect to these two objectives.
