As one of Australia’s longest running early years professional events, the 2021 Early Childhood Education Conference continues to explore the ‘macro’ issues for our sector, such as
- The need for continued governmental support of quality regulation
- The key challenges for pedagogy and practice, workforce development, leadership and management
- Helping the wider community to understand the essential benefits of quality early childhood education and care.
This year’s conference theme – 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 in Brisbane, Queensland, 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’.
