When do children begin and end school each day?

Generally, students attend school Monday to Friday, and the school day lasts about 6 hours.

Junior and Senior Kindergarten students is now a full day program across Ontario.

Most children bring lunch with them to school. Some children go home for lunch if they live close by and if a parent is at home. There are also usually short breaks in the day known as "recess," when children are free to play in the schoolyard.

Before and after school programs and extracurricular or cocurricular programs are available at some schools.

Many community agencies can help you find information about school for your children. To find help in your area, go to Services Near Me.
