Assessments of educational quality in childcare establishements

Assessment of the educational quality of childcare centers and daycare centers for groups of children from ages 3 to 5.

The Ministère de la Famille revealed on November 29, 2018 that Careplus "is the firm that was selected to assess the educational quality in childcare centres and daycare centres in Quebec, for groups of children aged 3 to 5 years. Servirplus will also be responsible for producing a personalized evaluation report for each of the childcare centres evaluated."

Proud of its participation, Careplus wishes to explain its role in this project.


Two separate service offerings

The team assigned to the educational quality assessment mandate is distinct from the team made up of psychoeducators who have been working for several years in childcare and daycare centres providing support and training. Indeed, a new team has been specially created to deal exclusively with the assessments of educational quality. This distinction between the two teams ensures the objectivity and neutrality of the evaluations.


A team of specialized professionals

The assessments will be entrusted to a team of professionals with the necessary expertise in the field of early childhood development, evaluation and observation and who will be expressly trained by a team of researchers from UQAM for this project.


When will the assessments start?

Careplus will officially start the evaluations in spring 2019 for a period of three years.

The team responsible for carrying out the educational quality assessments will communicate with the childcare centers and daycare centers concerned.

The assessment process will be gradually implemented in the network of educational childcare services. It will first focus on the evaluation of childcare centers and daycare centers, in groups of children of ages 3 to 5.
