Study: Ontario children gain learning benefits from full-day kindergarten
from Globe and Mail
Children attending Ontario's full-day kindergarten are outperforming their half-day peers at the end of Grade 2, according to a new study that upends older research that found the Liberal government's signature education program made little difference for pupils. A team of researchers from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto are tracking almost 600 children through the primary grades and have found that full-day kindergarten (FDK) learners are "significantly ahead" in reading, writing and number knowledge.
