Excerpts from the news release:
Budget 2014 provides $35.4 million over three years to implement a universal, full-day Kindergarten program, beginning in September 2016, and to further enhance early learning opportunities. The funding represents the beginning of Phase II of the province's Early Learning Strategy, Learning from the Start.
A key priority for the Provincial Government is strengthening regulated child care services across the province, as well as providing developmental opportunities for children and supporting the province's labour market. Budget 2014 allocates an additional $11.4 million for child care, bringing the total budget to approximately $42.5 million in 2014-15.
