Australian Early Development Census (AEDC)
The AEDC gives communities a snapshot of how children in their local area have developed by the time they start school. Every three years AEDC data is collected by Prep teachers about each child in their class. The AEDC measures five key areas, or domains, of child development which can have clear links to the Early Years Framework and the National Quality Standards:
Choices Family Day Care & Regional Choice FDC have examined the AEDC data. At a service level, the AEDC data has informed practices and programs. It has been identified that within our area, support is needed in each of the domains, and, we are working closely with community and professionals to commence an Early Intervention Program within our service.
Our early intervention programs are the result of the AEDC data, research, dedication, passion and a desire to assist children within our community. We believe that ‘every child deserves ‘the Right to Thrive’
