Thank you for attending

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, thank you for attending the 2021 AEDC Conference.

Held as an online event for the first time, the 2021 conference attracted over 690 attendees with presentations delivered by colleagues and professionals from around the globe.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next AEDC Conference, which will take as part of the next Australian Early Development Census.

About the Sponsor

The AEDC program is funded by the Australian Government, and managed by the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. In 2009, Australia became the first country in the world to collect national data on the development of all children starting school. The program is enabled by a strong working relationship between the Australian Government, all State and Territory governments, and research organisations.
