The first 5 years of children’s lives are very important in preparing them for future success in school and life. Ensuring Manitoba children get the best start in life is one of the key reasons for using the Early Development Instrument (EDI). The EDI is a questionnaire measuring Kindergarten children’s ‘readiness for school’ across several areas of child development. EDI results assist communities in planning for the services and programs children need in order to learn and enjoy their school experience.
