What is the EDI?

The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is a short questionnaire given to kindergarten teachers to complete about their students. It measures children’s ability to meet age appropriate developmental expectations and is used across Canada and internationally.

Importance of the EDI

By allowing your child to take part in the EDI you are helping provide valuable information that is helping to shape a better future for children in your community and beyond.


At the Offord Centre we take privacy very seriously and have a number of measures in place to safeguard the data we receive.
