Releasing the results during a community event in Sydney, Garrett said Australian children were showing development improvement in social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills, and communication and general knowledge skills.

Garrett was quoted by Xinhua, as saying that the 2012 AEDI data showed a drop of 1.6 percent in the number of children who were classified as "developmentally vulnerable" in one or more areas, compared with three years ago.

"Research shows that investing time, effort and resources in children's early years, when their brains are developing rapidly, benefits them and the whole community," he said in a statement.

"The overall national improvement means that over the next five years as they hit school age, we can expect 24,000 more children to start their school life better prepared."
