Excerpt: "Pre-primary helps support educational, social and emotional development of children and supports their learning and growth the year before they start school.
That is why every four-year-old in the province will have access to this free, universal program in September 2020.
Premier Stephen McNeil announced today, Feb. 11, the final expansion of the program to the remaining 48 school communities.
“When we launched pre-primary, our goal was to give families of four-year-olds across our province an early learning opportunity, at no cost, the year before their child starts school,” said Premier McNeil. “That vision is about to become a reality. In September, every family with a four-year-old who wants pre-primary, will have access to pre-primary, regardless of income or where they live. Getting these young children started off on the right foot will benefit our entire province in the long term.”"
