Early Childhood Australia National Conference 2021

After much consideration, and with the safety of our delegates in mind,
Early Childhood Australia has made the difficult decision to make the 2021 National Conference fully virtual.

We are very excited to bring a virtual conference program which will now feature the FULL CONFERENCE program
of over 100 sessions on the 6 – 9 September 2021.

Young Citizens: the right to play, learn and be heard

Young Citizens: the right to play, learn and be heard is the theme for Early Childhood Australia’s (ECA) National Conference, to be held virtually from Monday 6 September—Thursday 9 September 2021.

In 2021 we celebrate young children as citizens with rights. Throughout this conference we will explore how we respect and support those rights – particularly through play, play based pedagogy and child-informed practice. This builds on the QLD Branch’s leadership in the development of the 2014 Statement of Intent on Children’s Rights in Early Education and Care and over 60 years of celebrating ‘Under Eights Week’.
