Kindergarten Transition

Prince Edward Island began to offer a full-day, school-based kindergarten program in September 2010. The Kindergarten Transition Team has published another progress report titled Lessons Learned after transitioning kindergarten from the community to the school system. The team included representatives of the department, school boards, the early childhood sector and partner groups.

Kindergarten began in the 19th century. It means "a garden for children", a place where children can be nurtured and allowed to grow at their own pace.
