We believe that FDK sets the foundation for the students to succeed in future learning. Due to the recent strike, it is important to remember that ever since FDK was rolled out in 2009/2010 the impact on the children has been significant. When FDK was rolled out they did a series of studies that shadowed 690 students in 125 schools across Ontario. The studies showed that children who did not attend FDK before enrolling into Grade 1 were at greater risks in areas of learning such as, social competence, language and cognitive development, communication skills and general knowledge. Through being enrolled in FDK, even if it was only for 1 year, children had accelerated development in these areas of learning.

FDK allows families and children the chance to have:

1. Free education 

2. The proper support they need in order to help their development

3. Tools (computers, tablets, laptops, etc.) that may not be accessible at home to help further their education

4. Parents the opportunity to go back to work to focus their professional development

5. A stable routine throughout the day
