Ontario Plans to Let Parents Leave 4-Year-Olds in School from 7:30am till 6pm

A sweeping change that would combine day care with kindergarten in Ontario schools is being proposed by Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty. The plan would allow parents of 4- and 5-year-olds to leave their children at school from 7:30 in the morning to 6 in the evening.

The proposal to create a single full-day program in Ontario as early as September, 2010, is the result of a report by former deputy education minister Charles Pascal, who was commissioned by McGuinty in 2007 to advise on how best to offer school-centred childcare for four and five-year-olds. McGuinty first promised the program in the 2003 provincial election.

I have serious issues with this. During the early years it is very important that the parents take care of the child and mould the child. This new change will allow the state to start brainwashing the child from a young age. It seems part of the agenda to destroy the family, more so in Canada where Gay Marriage is legal. Taking the children away from home at such a young age prevents the child from building a bond with the parents.

Instead of whisking the kids away to school, I wish the government would pay parents some kind of stipend so that one parent could stay at home to take care of the kids.

I worry that this might become mandatory and parents will be forced to send kids to school, as the government will claim that early childhood education is necessary for an advanced society.
