‘Be the difference for children and families’ is the theme for ECA’s National Conference to be held in Sydney, 19–22 September 2018. This event brings people together to recognise the impact of high-quality early childhood education on the lives of young children and their families, as well as the importance of investing in ongoing professional development for educators, teachers and sector leaders.
The conference will explore current and emerging practice, showcase professional development resources and facilitate deep reflective thinking. It is also a terrific opportunity to network with peers, meet with leading suppliers and see the latest technology available to support early childhood service delivery.

The Early Childhood Australia National Conference is one the most eagerly awaited events by those who work with young children across a myriad of professions. It brings together early childhood educators, teachers, academics, leaders and other allied professionals from all around Australia and indeed overseas, to be inspired and share ideas and experiences in an environment of collegiality and collaboration.
It is an opportunity to challenge and be challenged, to affirm and be affirmed, to reflect critically and constructively, and importantly celebrate the achievements and gains made in our genuine effort to improve outcomes for children, their families and those who work with them each day.
The 2018 National Conference in Sydney is an opportunity to renew acquaintances and make new ones during the conference and associated events. I look forward to welcoming participants particularly as Early Childhood Australia celebrates its 80th year of advocacy and support on behalf of young children.
