REDUCE CLASS SIZE OF FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN IN ONTARIO

343 Signatures Goal: 200,000

The current Full Day Kindergarten class size average of 26 students is unacceptable. It is unfair to our children and to the teachers who are expected to effectively deliver a curriculum which will set the stage for their future academic achievements. We respectfully ask that the class ratio be returned to 1:10, which is the current acceptable ratio for before and after school care, as well as in Daycares across the Province.

    young children need more attention so a smaller ratio would benefit all the children with a better success rate overall

    The noise level over 25 is incredible. Also consider that many of us have children in these classrooms with extra needs such Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, Autism, Anxiety, or still having issues with the bathroom, etc These little ones need ratios to be lower to receive the extra support. No one wins when the ratios are high.

    I teach a class of 27, and I sometimes come home and think, "Was so- and-so at school today? He/She was. Oh grief, I didn't even speak to them. Yikes!" This is not how a child learns that they are loved, respected, and valued. This is how they learn that school is not s place for them. It HAS to change!
