EDI scores can be a powerful tool for influencing policy and programming decisions by providing data about the strengths and weaknesses of all the kindergarten age children in a neighbourhood or community.
The willingness of teachers to thoroughly and competently complete the EDI on each of their students is vital to the success of the instrument. Without teachers there would be no EDI.
How do we improve developmental outcomes for our children? The Ontario Ministry of Education has produced a helpful chart which offers guidance when making program decisions as part of their Full-Day Early Learning-Kindergarten Program report.
