Excerpt from the budget update speech:

We are committing to $151 million to provide the option of full-day kindergarten for 50 per cent of the children starting school next fall and for every five-year-old in British Columbia by September 2011, as outlined in last week’s Throne Speech. This is a critical investment in our future, to help ensure that our children start school ready to learn and carry that advantage with them all through their lives.
