Abstract: The first three waves of parent and study child data from the longitudinal study of Indigenous children (LSIC) will be explored in this presentation. It will look at Wave 3 outcome data for the child cohort, including: the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), Who Am I? and Renfrew vocabulary scores and examine what affects these scores. What can LSIC tell us about the experiences of Indigenous children and parents with preschool and school? Initial analyses suggest that children in Wave 2 who had been to preschool in Wave 1 tended to score higher on measures of vocabulary and school readiness than children who had not been to preschool or childcare. Initial analyses also suggest most children in the study do like school, are not bullied and are attending every day. The first three waves of parent and study child data will be explored in this presentation which provides unique insights into the experiences of Indigenous children and parents.
