What the AEDC means for communities
The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) provides people with a common ground to work together to build and strengthen their community and help shape the future and wellbeing of Australian children.
The Australian Government’s commitment to the AEDC supports communities to improve outcomes for children and families by providing evidence to strengthen the development of local strategies and initiatives that address identified gaps.
By exploring the AEDC results, your community can work together to find out more about what works well in your area and what can be improved. This way, your community will be able to provide better support for local children and their families.
The AEDC results provide a snapshot of how children are developing in your community. This information ensures that children’s needs are understood at a community level, helping keep children on-track to meet their early year development milestones.
