Resources for early childhood educators 

Resources developed by Queensland Government for the early childhood sector

The Queensland Department of Education and Training has worked with Early Childhood Australia to develop a suite of AEDC resources to support the critical work of the early childhood sector and their communities in providing the best developmental opportunities for children. This comprehensive suite of resources includes videos and printable documents that provide information about the strong links between the AEDC, the National Quality Standard and the Early Years Learning Framework as well as examples of how early childhood providers have used the data.

Resources developed by the Centre for Community Child Health 

Policy Briefs, published by the Centre for Community Child Health, also offer insight into research evidence to guide policy and practice in early childhood development.
