Education in Ontario
Education in Ontario comprises public and private primary and secondary schools and post-secondary institutions. Publicly funded elementary and secondary schools are administered by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Several publicly funded school systems provide elementary and secondary schooling to Canadian residents of the province from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. Preschool daycare is usually for children under 4 years of age. Next comes Junior Kindergarten/J.K (for children who turn 4 before December 31) and Senior Kindergarten/S.K (for children who turn 5 before December 31). Ministry of Education documents divide grades into two categories: Elementary (Grades 1–8) and Secondary (Grades 9–12). Local variances exist in the division of grades (e.g. middle school).[37] While children must begin school if they are 6 years old on the first day of the school year,[38] the cutoff is 31 Dec:[39] A 5-year-old may start Grade 1 if they will turn 6 by December 31. Children typically start a grade if they will be the following age by December 31:
