These videos, which are intended to complement the Preschool Education Program, provide more detailed information on the practices that foster acquisition of the Program’s six competencies. They can serve as catalysts during group meetings: the subjects covered can facilitate discussion and thereby enable teachers to reexamine their pedagogical practices. Moreover, the videos are an interesting way of familiarizing Elementary, Cycle One teachers with the Preschool Education Program.
