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

C&K Conference


On Saturday 20 July 2024, join us at the Royal International Convention Centre in Meanjin, Brisbane for the C&K Conference - Everyday Matters: For Every Child, For You, For Impact

This is a day to connect with other early years educators and listen to teachers, policymakers, facilitators, academics, and researchers about what really matters in the lives of children and those who teach and care for them.  

With a sold-out attendance of over 500 delegates in 2023, this conference promises to be a dynamic gathering of minds dedicated to shaping the future of early childhood education. 

Submit your abstract

If you are an early year’s specialist, policymaker, researcher, academic or thought-leader with contemporary practice and knowledge of culturally safe, inclusive, and responsive Kindergarten programs, the ethics of AI, future technologies, educator wellbeing, gender identity and diversity, social justice, environmental sustainability, technology, trauma-informed practice, neurodiversity and inclusive education, or children’s rights and consent – 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 focus on the importance of what we do every day.  

Join us in shaping the future of early childhood education. Submit your abstract now and be a part of the 2024 C&K Conference. Every day matters and your contribution makes a difference!
