ECA Qld Under Eights Week 15-21 May 2024

Under Eights Week 2024

Invitation to host an event to celebrate Under 8’s week 15–21 May 2024

The Early Childhood Australia (ECA) Queensland Committee invites you to join us in celebrating Under Eights Week 2024. The Under Eights Week is a flagship event for the ECA Queensland Branch and a cherished event for early childhood education services, schools, playgroups, children and families in Queensland.

The event has been running in Queensland for over fifty years and plays a vital role in the advocacy work of the committee and our sector in promoting the importance of early childhood and play.

This year’s theme is ‘Connecting to culture through play’ and we welcome events which promote the universal right of every child to play and to celebrate diverse play traditions and experiences from different cultures.
