COVID INFORMATION - ECS is committed to promoting community safety, and good health and hygiene practices for both our presenter and event attendees. That is why we are a COVID Safe business. In light of the recent COVID-19 recommendations, we we are back to running live vents, but we are keeping number limited to allow for social distancing. Events will follow the COVID-19 Safety Plan for the relevant venue as well as our own COVID-19 safety plan. We are so happy to back with you and hope to start to see more of you as restrictions continue to lift!
On a side note, we know many of you continue to work to support your local communities, service families and children through these confusing times. You're all doing amazing work and proving the importance of early childhood education services, not only to child development, but to family security and the global economy. In the words of the wonderful Rita Pierson (see our list of favourite TED talks) "We are educators - we are born to make a difference"! Keep safe and happy everyone!
