A Lunch and Learn Companion Fact Sheet

The Early Development Instrument measured the development of Albertan kindergartners over a period of five years. How are Albertan kids doing?

From 2009–2013, the Government of Alberta ran a research study on early childhood development. They used the Early Development Instrument (EDI), a standardized method to measure the development of five-year-old-children. Kindergarten teachers filled out questionnaires about the development of each child in their classrooms in order to report on children’s social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.
