The Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) is a population based measure of how children have developed by the time they start school. It looks at five areas of early childhood development domains: physical health and wellbeing, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills, and communication skills and general knowledge.

The AEDC is a reliable and valid measure of child development across five domains. These documents contain useful information about how the AEDC applies to each of the 5 councils in the G21 Region - City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe, Golden Plains Shire, Colac Otway Shire.
