The Winnipeg School Division has named four schools likely to have full-day kindergarten classes as a pilot project in the fall. They are John M. King, Strathcona, Norquay and Wellington schools.
The division said the four schools have the enrolment and the space to accommodate full-day kindergarten of 14 to 20 students in September, but the division will consult parents before making it official, possibly as early as the May 5 board meeting.
WSD announced earlier this year it will introduce full-day kindergarten as a pilot project at as many as four schools in the fall.
Eventually -- though how long has not been determined -- the division would have full-day daily kindergarten and nursery in every one of its elementary schools. Kindergarten and nursery are currently half-days.
