Observatoire des tout petits & Fondation Lucie and Andre Changnon: Child Development in Kindergarten
In Quebec, ONE CHILD OUT OF EVERY FOUR in kindergarten is vulnerable in at least one area of their development. This proportion reaches one out of three in the most disadvantaged neighborhoods. When brought to the attention of the general public, these figures were deemed unacceptable by 81% of Quebecers. The dialogue process initiated by the Early Childhood Observatory— particularly the survey conducted by the Léger firm in the summer of 2016—has established that Quebecers look very favorably on increased investment in early childhood.
