    Enquête québécoise sur le développement des enfants à la maternelle 2012. Portrait statistique pour le Québec et ses régions administratives

    This publication presents the main findings of the Québec Survey of Child Development in Kindergarten 2012 (QSCDK) for Québec as a whole and its regions. It deals, in particular, with some of the characteristics of children in kindergarten and the proportion of vulnerable children according to five domains of development: physical health and well-being; social competence; emotional maturity; cognitive and language development; and communication skills and general knowledge.

    Conducted with approximately 4000 teachers in over 1600 elementary schools (French-speaking and English-speaking, public and private) in Québec’s 17 administrative regions, this large-scale survey provides reliable data on the children enrolled in kindergarten for 5-year-olds full time in 2011-2012. Nearly 65 000 questionnaires were completed by the teachers between February and May 2012.
