Dr. Charles Pascal Visits St. Francis Catholic School

Dr. Charles Pascal took some time to talk with students and staff at St. Francis during his visit to their Best Start Hub recently.

May 25, 2010 - Dr. Charles Pascal visited Sudbury on May 20th and stopped in to see the St. Francis Best Start Hub. Dr. Pascal was appointed by Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty to be his special advisor on early learning in November 2007 and was asked to recommend the best way to implement full-day learning for four- and five-year-olds.
On June 15, 2009, Dr. Pascal presented his report, “With Our Best Future in Mind: Implementing Early Learning in Ontario”. The report contains 20 recommendations on how to introduce full-day learning to Ontario students, how to improve education for children up to 12 and how to increase supports for young families. Dr. Pascal interacted with the families at the St. Francis hub and also dropped into one of the senior kindergarten classes to participate in the circle time and story. He visited a number of other Hubs in Sudbury, including Pius XII Best Start Hub as he was in town to see the many great initiatives that support early learning within schools.
