CAQ promises to free up 50,000 daycare spots by putting kids in preschool early
Letting children start government-funded pre-k at age 4 would mean more openings at public daycares
The Coalition Avenir Québec announced a plan Saturday to free up 50,000 daycare spots by making government-funded pre-kindergarten available to children as of age four.
During a campaign event in Boucherville, CAQ leader François Legault said that by putting kids in public preschool sooner, thousands of daycare spaces would open up.
Legault spoke at a rally on Montreal's South Shore in Montarville, a riding now held by the CAQ.
He said the policy could come into effect as early as 2019 and that a similar policy is already in operation in Ontario.
