TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Ontario's Catholic Teachers support the move to full day Kindergarten and look forward to reviewing the details of enabling legislation that was introduced to the Ontario Legislature today by Education Minister Leona Dombrowsky.
"We are already scheduling discussions with the government for clarification of the contents of the Bill," says OECTA president James Ryan. "Above all, we want to ensure that the program that is being rolled out over the next five years meets the needs of Ontario's four- and five- year olds and their parents, teachers and Early Childhood Educators (ECEs)."
OECTA represents the 45,000 women and men who teach from Kindergarten through high school in Ontario's publicly funded English Catholic schools. www.oecta.on.ca
