Three orientations are being used to pursue the two objectives of the mandate for the Preschool Cycle Program, which are global development, and universal and targeted prevention. These three orientations are: play, observation of the children’s progress and classroom organization. Each of these orientations is a cornerstone in teaching the program on a day-to-day basis, and each one specifies the elements essential to providing quality preschool education tailored to the characteristics and needs of 4- to 6-year-olds.

The tools proposed here are designed to help you become familiar with the Preschool Cycle Program. They are an invitation to reflect on the place of the essential elements in the teacher’s practice in order to give meaning to the mandate.
