AEDC resources for educators

Western Australian-led resource development for early childhood education and care.

This Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) resource package assists the early childhood education and care (ECEC) and schooling sectors to engage with and build a deeper understanding of the AEDC.

This includes links with the National Quality Standard, Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum, and how the AEDC can be used for evidenced-based and evidence-informed planning within local community contexts.

The package includes domain guides, links to key frameworks, other printable resources, and video examples of how ECEC centres and schools have used the data.

The Department of Education has developed this package working closely with the Telethon Kids Institute, the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia, Catholic Education Western Australia, the New South Wales Department of Education and the South Australian Department for Education and Child Development.
