The Kindergarten Program, 2016 (Interim Release)
Policies set out in the final Kindergarten program document – The Kindergarten Program, 2016 – will be implemented in Ontario schools in September 2016. Planned for release in late spring 2016, The Kindergarten Program will supersede The Full-Day Early Learning–Kindergarten Program, Draft Version, 2010–11.
Key components of the final Kindergarten program document are being made available to assist educators as they prepare for the 2016–17 school year.
In conjunction with the new Kindergarten program, the ministry is releasing the policy document Growing Success – The Kindergarten Addendum: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, 2016. Beginning in September 2016, the assessment, evaluation, and reporting of children’s learning in Kindergarten in Ontario schools will be based on the policies and practices described in this document.
