Details of the event:

Young Citizens: the right to play, learn and be heard is the theme for Early Childhood Australia’s (ECA) National Conference.

This conference will celebrate young children as citizens with rights. Throughout this conference you will explore how early childhood professionals can respect and support those rights – particularly through play, play based pedagogy and child-informed practice. This conference presents as an extension to the ECA QLD Branches 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’.

The conference will explore a range of topics, under the five key themes of children as citizens, pedagogy and practice, creativity and curiosity, ethics and leadership, and workforce capacity, capability and wellbeing.
