P.E.I. scores top marks in early childhood education, according to report

EXCERPTS
P.E.I. Education Minister Brad Trivers has tabled a document in the legislature indicating the Island has the top marks in the country when it comes to early childhood education.
Though Trivers referred to the numbers in the 2017 Early Childhood Education Report, he echoed Official Opposition concerns on protecting those numbers when considering adding more programming.
The Early Childhood Education Report is an assessment of a series of benchmarks for early childhood education in Canada. P.E.I. scored 11 out of a possible 15 points.
