EDI (Early Development Instrument)
The EDI is a questionnaire completed by teachers for all Kindergarten children in all 37 public school divisions. The EDI provides a population-based, community-level measure of how well communities are preparing Manitoba’s children for school.
The EDI measures school readiness in five areas of early childhood development:
- Physical Health and Well-Being
- Social Competency
- Emotional Maturity
- Language and Cognitive Development and Communication Skills
- General Knowledge
The EDI helps us answer the following questions:
- Are Manitoba children getting what they need in their first years of life?
- How ready are Manitoba’s children when they begin school?
