AEDC informational videos

The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is a nationwide census of early childhood development. The AEDC is a measure of all children as they start their first year of full-time school, and looks at children as a whole group.

The AEDC helps shape the future and wellbeing of Australian children by providing evidence to support health, education and community policy and planning. 

The AEDC is about our children, our communities and our future.
