Elementary curriculum

The Ontario curriculum explains the knowledge and skills that students should have acquired by the end of each school year. It takes into account, among other things, the diversity of student needs. Designed for teachers, the curriculum is accessible to all who wish to consult it.

It is important to note that the French and English versions of the Ontario curriculum are not entirely identical. It is therefore preferable to consult the curriculum in the language of your school board.

Here's what the Ontario elementary curriculum includes:

Kindergarten and kindergarten:

  • a single program, in French and English

Elementary level (from 1re to 8e year):

  • 11 subjects for French-language school boards
  • 8 subjects for English language school boards

The elementary curriculum is regulated by the Ontario Ministry of Education. You can consult the curriculum according to the school year or according to the teaching subject.

Digital framework programs

The government is currently working to convert the framework to digital versions. These are offered on a new web platform called Curriculum and Resources.
