In 2010-2011 Langley School District has been allotted funding for up to 535 FDK spaces, inclusive of current obligations. In 2011-2012 Full Day Kindergarten will be available for all children in the district and in the province. Our school is one of the sites that has been chosen for implementation in Year One, which means as of Sept. 2010 our Kindergarten classes will operate on the same full-day schedule as Grades 1-5. It is important to note that Kindergarten will still be Kindergarten after FDK is implemented. The Prescribed Learning Outcomes will be the same. The expanded Kindergarten program will be play-based and designed to address all areas of child development: physical, social, emotional and cognitive. The longer instructional day will give teachers more time to deliver the Kindergarten Curriculum and to spend with individual students at an important time in their development. A QuickLink has been posted on the Langley School District web site at www.sd35.bc.ca for parents who want to know more about FDK and the implementation plan. It includes a link to the Ministry of Education Full Day Kindergarten page and an FAQ about implementation in Langley School District. If you want to find out more about implementation at our school, please don’t hesitate to call the school (604-533-1468).
