Australian Early Development Census

The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is a measure of how young children are developing in their community and is based on scores from a teacher completed checklist. The AEDC measures key areas of early childhood development: 

  • physical health and wellbeing
  • social competence
  • emotional maturity
  • language and cognitive skills (school-based) and
  • communication skills and general knowledge

For more information about the AEDC and to see the results for the City of Gosnells area and each suburb, please visit the AEDC website.
