All SD83 Kindergarten families will be receiving an email from our school district today with a unique link to the CHEQ (Childhood Experiences Questionnaire).
The CHEQ is a questionnaire completed by parents and caregivers at the start of the Kindergarten school year. It helps teachers, school administrators, and community partners to provide and improve targeted supports for children and families.
The CHEQ is used to:
- Develop district and community-wide programs and policies;
- Better understand the early experiences of children and families; and
- Improve classroom planning and school programming.
The CHEQ includes questions about children’s experiences with language and numeracy, nutrition and sleep habits, activities at home and in the community, and access to and use of resources and services. Please reach out to Jennifer Findlay, District Principal – Early Learning, at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
