What the AEDC means for schools
Findings from the AEDC can help schools identify areas where children and families in their community require additional support to achieve positive outcomes. The AEDC can be used to start conversations that raise awareness of the importance of the early years, develop relationships with local early childhood education services and assist with the understanding of vulnerability and protective factors in the community.
What is the school’s role in the AEDC data collection?
Without the commitment and support of all schools across Australia, the AEDC would not be possible.
Schools play a vital role in the collection of accurate and relevant data that provides the first insight into whether or not children in their early years are on track.
