Understanding children's development through the Australian Early Development Census

  • CityHive 184 Marine Terrace Geraldton, WA, 6530 Australia

This workshop is the first of a free series on how to plan for children's development. It is for early years teachers (school and non-school), education leaders and room leaders (Long Day Care, Family Day Care, Outside School Hours Care), members of the Midwest Early Years Network, and regional education administrators, and will help participants understand brain development, the AEDC, and consider AEDC results for the region.


No prior knowledge is required for this workshop.

It aims for participants to:

  • Develop a sound understanding of early years brain development and the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC)
  • Consider AEDC results for the region and how the data can be used to recognise the vulnerabilities and competencies within local communities to inform planning
  • Capture the knowledge base of participants and inform content of future workshops in the series
  • Network with different service types implementing the National Quality Framework, Early Years Learning Framework and My Time Our Place. 

AEDC: The Australian Government is working with State and Territory Governments to implement the Australian Early Development Census. Since 2002, the Australian Government has worked in partnership with eminent child health research institutes: the Centre for Community Child Health; Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne; and the Telethon Kids Institute, Perth; to deliver the AEDC to communities nationwide.
