REPORTING CHILD COUNTS
Where two or more child episodes are linked, the unique characteristics within each episode are used to formulate the characteristics of the corresponding unique child record. Figure 3.13 outlines two linked episodes from two different preschool programs with weekly preschool fees, enrolment and attendance hours. This information is used to create a unique child record from the same data source supplied for the National ECEC Collection.
Figure 3.13: ‘Child Episode Record to Unique Child Record'
For the purpose of output reporting on hours enrolled, hours attended and preschool fees, the child’s multiple episode records are combined to obtain the total preschool program hours and total preschool program fees.
