Early Childhood Australia has branches in each state and territory across Australia.

The branches are an integral part of the organisation; they help identify issues and priorities for state and national action, and influence policies concerning young children. Branches are a great source of professional support and development for Early Childhood Australia members, with great networking opportunities.

Branches play a major role in Early Childhood Australia’s position statement development process, as members of national position statement working parties or by taking carriage of a particular position statement area.

Branches elect members to represent them at a national level, ensuring that the organisation stays informed on issues of national importance and local impacts. This provides members with the opportunity to inform and influence the direction and focus of the national body of Early Childhood Australia.

Each Early Childhood Australia branch elects four delegates to the Annual National Council Meeting and one delegate to the National Board of Directors. Click here for further information about the structure of Early Childhood Australia.

Each of the branches publishes a regular member newsletter focusing on local initiatives, as well as issues of national importance.
