Ford government says full-day 'learning' will stay, but it won't necessarily be kindergarten.(CBC NEWS)

"CBC News Toronto has also obtained clarification from the Ministry of Education that the announcement does not mean full-day kindergarten will continue beyond the 2019-2020 school year. Instead, children will have some form of learning environment to go to, but exactly what that will look like will depend on consultations that are currently ongoing. "

Since the decisions are not made yet and is not going to be Kinder anymore;  we are asking  the ministry of education to consider the model of having  Early Childhood Educators to implement the program and maintain the Play Based Learning and Self Regulation.

Considering that; ECEs have knowledge of early childhood development, observation skills  and assessment skills. They bring a focus on age-appropriate program planning that promotes each child’s physical, cognitive, language, emotional, social and creative development and well-being.

Please help us to get Doug Ford and Lisa Thompson's attention. Early Childhood Educators, we are a big and strong community. We are loud and proud, and we can be heard.
