CBC, March 26, 2019

Excerpt: "A research study into the well-being and educational development of Island Children by Chances and the Margaret and Wallace Family Foundation recommends public preschool for all four-year-olds on P.E.I.

The non-profit Chances and the McCain foundation carried out a six-year research project between 2012 and 2018 and based on the study, delivered seven recommendations today at a news conference at Chances Family Centre in Charlottetown.

"We recommend preschool for all four-year-olds, specifically calling on the government to appoint a special advisor reporting directly to the premier," said foundation co-founder Margaret McCain."
