Survey report

Purpose of the survey

This report presents the results of a survey on early childhood education. The aim of the survey was to determine what the good choice for childhood education is. Another goal was to know our opinions about the development of children.


A sample of 12 students answered the survey quetions. The sample was composed of six multiple-choice answers or four open-ended questions. The survey was carried out by students in my English class.


The results demonstrate that 58.3% don't know what law 124 is, 75% think that early childhood is a profession. There are 50% that think that children would have to go in a daycare center, 83.3% think that early childhood educators deserve to have a better wage and 91.7% think that an educator must have a technical training to do this profession and 50% say that it's more enriching to go to a daycare center before going to school.


Just three questions have a per cent higher than 70%. So those mean that the results are not conclusive because just three on twelve is valid. For the four open-ended questions the people didn't explain their answer, they just say yes or no, thus we can't know why they answered that answer. For the 10 questions, there are twelve people who answered the questionnaire but they didn't do all the questions which means that we can't have real results.


The survey confirms that the majority of the answers of question 8 (Do you find it useful to have a technical training to do this profession?) that educators must have a technical training to be an educator. The low percentage of answers means that the result is not valid and that to we can't make a good analysis for this project.

Early Childhood Education Survey

Welcome to my beautiful world

In the Tourist village of SylvanLake, that is half way between Edmonton and Calgary, there are many things you can visit. At an hour and a half drive, you can visit the Comlombia Icefield Center.
The Icefield Parkway is considered one of the most scenic highways in the world, the Icefields Parkway offers an ever-changing view of waterfalls, emerald lakes, alpine meadows and snow-capped peaks. For two hundred and thirty kilometres, from Lake Louise to Jasper townsite, the Parkway winds along the shoulder of the Great Divide and passas by the spectacular montains of the Estern Main Ranges of the Canadian Rockies. It follows the headwaters of three major rivers and crosses two major routes. Everyone should go to visit Lake Louise. The emerald color of it's water is due to the sediments from the icefields melting.
For people that like shopping, the West Edmonton Mall is the place to go. it is the biggest shopping center in Canada. Inside you can see a pirate ship, many ridie, water slides, a wave pool, a mini-putt, and oviously hundreds of stores.
There are many other things to visit or to do: horsebarck riding, swimming, going to Banff... But the West Edmonton Mall and the Icefields are the two things to see.
