The Kindergarten Program (2016)

Addto my notes


The Kindergarten Program, 2016 supersedes The Full-Day Early Learning‑Kindergarten Program, Draft Version, 2010–11. The policies outlined in The Kindergarten Program were implemented in Ontario schools beginning in September 2016.

The 2019 Addendum to The Kindergarten Program updates two specific expectations – expectation 6.4 and expectation 24.1 – in The Kindergarten Program to include new learning on concussions and online safety.

In conjunction with The Kindergarten Program, the ministry released the policy document Growing Success – The Kindergarten Addendum: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, 2016. Since September 2016, the assessment, evaluation, and reporting of children's learning in Kindergarten in Ontario schools has been based on the policies and practices described in this document.
