Stop the Cuts to Full Day Kindergarten

WHEREAS Kids deserve the best start in life and full day kindergarten has helped improve social, emotional and cognitive development since its implementation;

WHEREAS Doug Ford's proposed lifting of the class size cap for kindergarten would mean even more crowded classrooms, less one-on-one time with teachers, and less support for our youngest learners;

WHEREAS The Ford government has refused to commit to full day kindergarten continuing past 2019;

WHEREAS Eliminating full day kindergarten would negatively impact kids while causing chaos for parents;

WHEREAS Evidence is clear that smaller class sizes mean big benefits for Ontario's students;

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to call on the Ford government to take full-day kindergarten off the chopping block, oppose any plan to increase class sizes, and instead listen to families and education workers by making things better for kids, not worse.
