C&K Conference | C&K - childcare and kindergarten

C&K Conference

On Saturday 29 July 2023, we will come together at the Royal International Convention Centre in Meanjin, Brisbane for the C&K Conference: Reflect, Connect, Ignite – for a shared future. 

The C&K Conference is a unique platform for discussion and critical reflection - a day to connect, exchange ideas and to find joy in the everyday as well as the unexpected.

As we look to the future as early years professionals, it’s time to listen to those who are nurturing and inspiring children and educators to flourish in an ever-changing world. 

Call for Papers

If you are an early year’s specialist, policymaker, researcher, academic or thought-leader with contemporary practice and knowledge of reconciliation, cultural diversity, gender identity and diversity, social justice, sustainability, technology, trauma-informed practice, inclusion, or children’s rights – we’d love to hear from you.

We encourage submissions from all early year’s professionals (birth to eight years), including C&K educators and senior teachers, with aspirational ideas that create joy, connection, curiosity and hope for the future of our work. 

Let’s reflect, connect and ignite the spark that will take us into a shared future, together.
