About us

Early Childhood Australia (ECA) has been a voice for young children since 1938. We are the peak early childhood advocacy organisation, acting in the interests of young children, their families and those in the early childhood field. ECA advocates to ensure quality, social justice and equity in all issues relating to the education and care of children aged birth to eight years.

Our vision: Every young child is thriving and learning.

Our role in achieving this vision is to be an effective advocate for young children and a champion for quality outcomes in early childhood education and care.

The Spoke is Early Childhood’s Australia’s blog, publishing articles by Australia’s leading policy makers, academics, experts and leaders and early childhood practitioners.

The Spoke is an extensive source of articles on early childhood research, policy and practice.

ECA does not endorse views of the authors of articles on the Spoke. It is a place to facilitate ideas and discussion and for educators and parents to share their own experiences.
