The purpose of this report is to document the implementation and impact of the Readiness to Learn in Minority Francophone Communities project (short title: Readiness to Learn project; previously the Child Care Pilot Project, or CCPP), a demonstration project funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC).
The Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) was hired to implement, manage, collect and analyze the project data. The project tests a preschool program1 that combines a childcare component developed specifically to meet the needs of Francophone children in minority settings with a family literacy component targeting the parents of these children.
This program aims to develop the child’s language skills, knowledge and use of French, knowledge of and engagement in Francophone culture, as well as to foster the child’s school readiness and general development.
