Early Development Instrument (EDI)
The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is a population based measure developed by the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University. This questionnaire is completed by Senior Kindergarten teachers in the second half of the year (February/March) and is designed to measure a child’s ability to meet age-appropriate developmental milestones at school entry.
The EDI measures children’s developmental health across five domains: Physical Health & Well-Being, Social Competence, Emotional Maturity, Language & Cognitive Development, and Communication Skills & General Knowledge.

Kindergarten Parent Survey (KPS)
The Kindergarten Parent Survey (KPS) was developed by the Offord Centre for Child Studies at McMaster University and is intended to be used as a companion to the Early Development Instrument (EDI) results. The KPS 2018 was completed by parents or guardians of Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Senior Kindergarten (SK) students in the spring of 2018, and includes topics such as child care, pre-kindergarten experiences, health and wellness, and parenting challenges. The results of the KPS provide valuable insight into the needs of families with young children in our district, and help in understanding how community factors can influence child development.
