Report on the State of Early Childhood Learning (2007)

This report, prepared by the Early Childhood Learning Knowledge Centre (ECLKC) of the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), assesses the state of early childhood development in Canada according to five indicators: birth weight; physical development, including both fine and gross motor skills; cognitive development; language and communications skills development; and emotional and social development.

Although analysis of existing data shows Canadian children performing well in comparison with their counterparts in other developed countries, the authors point to gaps in available information. For instance, many indicators of early learning are assessed just before children start their formal schooling, ignoring the period from birth to four years.

They emphasize the need for comprehensive, consistent, nationwide indicators for early childhood learning in order to show how children are progressing and where improvements are needed.
