The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC)
About the AEDC
The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is an Australian Government Initiative.
It is a nationwide survey that shows how young Australian children have developed as they start their first year of full-time education.
The AEDC highlights what is working well and what needs to be improved or developed to support children and their families.
The AEDC is a census that helps create a snapshot of early childhood development in Australia. This census takes place every 3 years and the next one will happen in 2015.
