BÂTISSONS LE FUTUR:
Les données probantes qui appuient l’investissement dans l’éducation préscolaire au Canada


Alors que les décideurs politiques et les politiciens canadiens sont encore à débattre des bienfaits associés aux investissements en éducation préscolaire, ils devraient prendre connaissance du consensus des chercheurs canadiens fondé sur les études canadiennes et internationales. Ces travaux montrent que l’on peut améliorer les conditions de vie des enfants, ainsi que le bien-être économique et social de notre société en investissant dans l’éducation préscolaire. Des experts en économie, en psychologie, en éducation, en santé, en médecine et en neurosciences s’entendent sur le fait qu’une éducation préscolaire de haute qualité améliore la scolarisation, l’adaptation sociale et la santé des enfants et de leur famille, tout en procurant des bienfaits économiques pour la société canadienne.

C’est à titre de chercheurs et d’experts que nous demandons aux planificateurs et aux décideurs politiques de continuer à investir dans les jeunes enfants sur la base d’un vaste ensemble de travaux scientifiques déjà disponibles. Ici, nous en décrivons brièvement les principales conclusions afin de les convaincre de donner priorité à un investissement dans des services d’éducation préscolaire de haute qualité au Canada. Nous présentons six résultats de la littérature scientifique démontrant l’importance d’investir dans l’éducation préscolaire.

Une éducation préscolaire de haute qualité favorise le développement du langage, de la lecture et des habiletés en mathématiques

Selon des évaluations systématiques pancanadiennes, au moins 25% des enfants de maternelle présentent une vulnérabilité sur le plan de leur développement physique, langagier et comportemental.

De nombreuses recherches montrent que l’éducation préscolaire de haute qualité améliore le langage, la lecture et les habiletés en mathématiques lorsque ces compétences sont évaluées à la fin d’une intervention. Ces résultats ont été obtenus à plusieurs reprises tant pour des programmes ciblés réalisés dans un cadre restreint que pour des programmes de plus grande envergure déployés dans le système public. Quatre décennies de travaux indiquent que comparativement à leurs pairs, les enfants participant à un programme préscolaire de haute qualité sont en avance d’au moins un tiers d’une année scolaire. Selon des recherches récentes, les enfants de milieux socioéconomiques défavorisés sont plus susceptibles de bénéficier de ces programmes, réduisant ainsi les écarts de succès scolaire liés au niveau socioéconomique. Donner aux enfants un bon départ améliore leurs habiletés sur le plan du langage, de la lecture et des mathématiques.

Une éducation préscolaire de haute qualité a des bienfaits sur le plan du développement socioémotionnel

High-quality preschool shows positive outcomesDes difficultés socioémotionnelles durant la petite enfance sont associées à l’abandon scolaire, aux problèmes de santé mentale à l’âge adulte et à des difficultés sur le marché du travail. Avec près de 25% des enfants canadiens de maternelle en difficulté sur le plan socio-émotionnel, il devient impératif d’intervenir dans le cadre de l’éducation préscolaire et primaire. Il est possible de réduire ces difficultés et de permettre ainsi aux enfants de s’engager dans des trajectoires de développement plus adaptées. Les bénéfices des programmes préscolaires qui visent tous les enfants sont plutôt modestes, mais ceux qui s’adressent aux enfants éprouvant déjà des difficultés, et qui interviennent également auprès des parents ont des effets plus importants à long terme. Parmi ces bienfaits, on note une diminution de l’abus de substances, de l’abandon scolaire, de la délinquance juvénile, de la criminalité à l’âge adulte, ainsi qu’un plus haut taux d’emploi et des revenus plus élevés sur le marché du travail

Il y a d avantage de bénéfices avec des programmes de meilleure qualité

Nous devons au Canada augmenter nos investissements dans l’éducation préscolaire sans en sacrifier la qualité. On a maintes fois démontré que les programmes préscolaires de haute qualité favorisent un meilleur développement des enfants. Des programmes de haute qualité entraînent aussi des gains plus durables. Ce sont les interactions positives et stimulantes qui constituent les éléments les plus efficaces d’un programme de haute qualité. Un soutien et un développement professionnel continus sont les moyens les plus sûrs d’offrir cet environnement positif. Quand le soutien à la formation est élevé, les enfants en bénéficient davantage. Assurer une formation professionnelle continue, améliorer les préalables de formation et de qualification des éducateurs sont donc des éléments essentiels des programmes préscolaires.

Des programmes de haute qualité améliorent le développement à long terme et bénéficient à une population canadienne diversifiée

Benefits of investing in ECEBien que les retombées de l’éducation préscolaire sur la performance scolaire s’atténuent avec le temps, plusieurs travaux suggèrent que son impact persiste sur une multitude d’aspects à l’âge adulte. Ces bénéfices durables s’observent, en particulier pour les enfants de famille défavorisées, par une diminution du taux d’abandon scolaire, des comportements criminels, de la consommation de substances, ainsi qu’une augmentation des revenus à l’âge adulte.

Dans une population diversifiée sur les plans ethnique et économique comme celle qui caractérise le Canada, l’éducation préscolaire publique doit profiter à tous. Les avantages d’une éducation préscolaire de haute qualité sont observables chez les enfants de classes socio-économiques faibles ou moyennes, mais apparaissent plus marqués pour les enfants de milieux défavorisés au plan socioéconomique, les enfants bilingues et les enfants de familles immigrantes. Investir dans les programmes d’éducation préscolaire entraîne des bienfaits durables pour la société.

Les bénéfices de l’investissement en éducation préscolaire excèdent de loin leurs coûts

Les bénéfices d’un investissement dans des programmes préscolaires de qualité équivalent-ils à leurs coûts? Ces bénéfices sont habituellement évalués sur la base (1) d’une diminution des dépenses dans les programmes tels que l’aide sociale, l’éducation spécialisée et les transferts aux familles; (2) d’une augmentation de la productivité économique telle que mesurée par un revenu supérieur à l’âge adulte et des impôts et taxes conséquemment payés. Les recherches montrent clairement que les bénéfices des programmes préscolaires excèdent leurs coûts, ce qui reflète un investissement économique prudent et avisé. En effet, les programmes préscolaires de haute qualité sont de ceux dont le rapport coûts-bénéfices est le plus avantageux

Les programmes qui favorisent l’engagement des parents ont une plus-value pour les enfants et leur famille

Le développement optimal des enfants dépend de la qualité de l’environnement à la maison et à l’école. Les programmes préscolaires dont les effets sur la lecture, des les mathématiques et les comportements sociaux sont les plus durables incluent une composante parentale. Celle-ci vise l’amélioration de la qualité des interactions parentenfant. Par conséquent, l’inclusion d’une composante parentale visant à soutenir l’apprentissage au delà des programmes préscolaires peut augmenter leur impact sur le succès scolaire précoce.
