Once every two years, Kindergarten teachers complete the EDI questionnaire for the children in their classroom. This occurs in early spring time. EDI data is collected province-wide on behalf of Healthy Child Manitoba (HCM) by all Kindergarten teachers in all 37 public school divisions. In addition, some Independent and First Nations schools participate on a voluntary basis. All Kindergarten students at participating schools are included unless they are withdrawn from participation by their parents.

For more information about EDI data, see the:

  • Early Development Instrument Data Description that contains a brief summary of the content of the data set and information on the Source Agency, Purpose, Years, Type, Size, Data Level, Components, Scope, Data Collection Method, Data Highlights, Data Cautions, Access Requirements, More Information, and Last Updated date;

  • MCHP Metadata Repository - Early Development Instrument (EDI) - [Internal Access Only] - for technical and programming related information, including an Overview, Data Model, Data Quality, Data Dictionary, Documents and Reports, and Blog.
