Enquête québécoise sur le développement des enfants à la maternelle 2017

This publication presents the main findings of the Québec Survey of Child Development in Kindergarten 2017 (QSCDK) for Québec as a whole and its regions. It provides information on certain 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; language and cognitive development; and communication skills and general knowledge.

Conducted with more than 5,000 teachers in about 1,800 elementary schools (French- and English-language, public and private) in Québec’s 17 administrative regions, this large-scale survey provides reliable data on the children enrolled full-time in 5-year-old kindergarten in 2016-2017. Over 83,000 questionnaires were completed by the children’s teachers between February and May 2017.
