Queensland Early Education and Care Conference

Friday 24 - Sunday 26 June 2016

The Queensland Early Education and Care Conference, Brisbane, is the largest conference of early childhood professionals across Queensland attracting over 700 delegates. 

Educators, sector representatives, resource and education partners come together to share knowledge, thinking and practice.

Saturday 25 June, Our communities

We know that successful early childhood education and care services are strongly embedded within community. But how can we work more collaboratively to strengthen outcomes and opportunities for children and families? What are effective partnerships and how can we work in more innovative ways?   

Our keynote speaker, Karni Liddell, will challenge us to consider our choices whatever circumstances we may find ourselves in. Then we'll learn about partnerships with the community that better the lives of all children and families.

Sunday 26 June, Our children

We've joined up with the largest children's festival in the Southern Hemisphere, Out of the Box. This is a practical day of experimental learning with creative and innovative workshops to inspire you and the children you work with.



Child care 

This year's FREE child care services will no longer be going ahead due to limited uptake of these services.  Let's try again next year - shall we?
