The Department of Education worked with Early Childhood Australia to develop a suite of Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) resources to support the critical work of the early childhood sector and their communities in providing the best developmental opportunities for children.

Since their release, the resources have been used widely across Queensland to support ongoing critical reflection and inform programming and planning in early childhood education and care services.
