The province is urging parents to sign up for September's full-day kindergarten (FDK) classes in the final year of the program's roll-out.

Education Minister Liz Sandals tells parents to bring their child's ID - like a birth certificate, OHIP information and immunization records when registering.

Sandals reveals that come September, the province will have spent $1.5 billion to upgrade schools for FDK. She says some needed a handful of new classes to accommodate the number of new students coming in.

She says a going through FDK reduces the risk of challenges kids may have by 50 per cent by grade one.
