Full Day Kindergarten

Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) is available to all students beginning school in the Abbotsford School District.

Full-Day Kindergarten is associated with improved literacy and numeracy, smoother transitions to Grade 1, and increased post-secondary graduation rates.

Research shows that a high quality, play-based kindergarten program has long-term benefits for children’s academic and social skills and helps them to succeed in school and in life. Full day kindergarten is another step towards building a strong foundation for lifelong learning, in a nurturing, play-based environment.
