About the resources for schools
The resources in this page are intended specifically for schools. It includes printable documents and videos providing information on how schools can use the AEDC data to further early childhood development across Australia.
Other AEDC publications and resources are available elsewhere on this site; and most can be accessed directly from the Resources menu at the top of the page.
Value of AEDC data for teachers, schools and beyond
The Queensland Department of Education has worked with the Telethon Kids Institute and the University of Queensland to develop a series of resources specifically tailored for schools seeking to strengthen their transition to school strategies by responding to their local AEDC data. These resources, at https://education.qld.gov.au/about-us/reporting-data-research/data/aus-early-development-census were developed in consultation with three Queensland schools who took part in an extensive action research process that involved analysing their AEDC data in partnership with the local community, and developing informed, responsive plans for children's transition to school.
