Summary
The 'Footprints in time' longitudinal study in Australia investigates how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children's early years affect their development. Two cohorts will be followed: 960 babies, aged 6 to 18 months old, and 727 children, aged 3 to 4 years old. This report presents findings from the Wave 4 data, with most of the participants now at school. It explores: learning and school readiness, health and nutrition, emotional development, family finances, family relations, socioeconomic disadvantage and child outcomes, and cultural identity and racism. This report also features special articles on breastfeeding, learning to read English, housing conditions and health, and body mass index rates. The findings show that though many Indigenous children are flourishing, there also many experiencing difficulties
