Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:A child is defined as attending a preschool program if they attended for at least one hour during the reference period. Children who were absent during the reference period due to illness or extended holiday leave should be excluded.
Collection methods:

The number of Indigenous children attending a preschool program should be collected for each preschool program available at the service. These data should then be aggregated to the service provider level for reporting purposes.

Each child should be counted only once.

Attendance in a preschool program should be reported for the specified reference period.

Jurisdictions which adopt a two week reference period are required to derive their data to a representative reference week.
