Do children in Full-day Kindergarten learn more than in Half-day Kindergarten?
I am interested in researching the impact of full-day kindergarten programs on early learning as I am planning to start daycare and Kindergarten businesses. It is probable that I will start these businesses in Ontario where full implementation of FDK in all schools is scheduled for September 2015. As I replicate the business model I am working on to other provinces/countries where there is no policy forcing a specific type of program for Kindergarten, I want to determine if it is worth adopting a full-day Kindergarten policy for my schools.
