Early Childhood Australia’s (ECA) Online Events
The ECA Events team is adapting to the challenging times and working towards keeping the sector connected virtually. We are excited to announce our monthly online ‘Connect Events’ series where we will bring you new professional learning events on a diverse range of topics, such as reconciliation, vulnerable children, ethics in action, and more.
The Connect Events series will give you interactive and engaging opportunities to stay in touch with other early childhood professionals from across Australia and overseas. Each virtual event—with features such as Q&A, live chat and facilitated group discussions—will be a safe space to connect, converse and reflect on important topics.
Below is an overview of our upcoming events. Remember, our aim is to connect early childhood professionals and keep the conversation open on issues important to our sector. If you have a particular topic you’d like to focus on, or have a recommendation for any good presenters we should connect with, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Connecting to support children who are experiencing vulnerability
Personal, family or community circumstances can create vulnerabilities for families and children, placing their wellbeing under pressure. These circumstances include poverty, unemployment, relationship issues, illness, frequent family relocation, family violence, alcohol and other drug use, social isolation, racism and other forms of discrimination. This event will elaborate on these issues, explore the impact of vulnerability on young children as well as focus on identifying and approaching support structures—within and outside our setting—that can help vulnerable children.
