Depuis qu' il est petit, il adore les sucettes. (Since he was small, he's loved lollipops.)
This was the question in the mini kwiz. isn't the translation ( since he is small, he loves lollipop)
This question relates to:French lesson "Depuis que + verb = (ever) since + verb"
No! I don't think so.
Depuis que as I understand it makes reference to a time earlier which is continuing now.
I understand that "depuis" is used with the present tense.
It would be nice to have an expert comment though.
Hope that helps.

Not an expert, but depuis can be used with other tenses as well:
Elle ne m'a pas téléphoné depuis quelques jours. -- She hasn't called me since several days.
There's even a lesson on kwiziq: Using Le Passé Composé or Le Présent in negative sentences with ''depuis''
