COVID-19 Information

ECS is committed to promoting community safety, and good health and hygiene practices for both our presenter and event attendees. In light of the recent COVID-19 recommendations, we are pausing some of our events. Ticket holders to events will be advised of postponements and cancellations as more updates come through from our venues and the government. Any cancelled events will be fully refunded. In the event a future workshop is postponed, ticket holders will still be given the choice of a refund. We are happy to say that some of our events are also back up and running! This depends on our venue for each event. Events that are moving forward will follow the COVID-19 Safety Plan for the relevant venue. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you can bear with us through this time.
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! 
Below are our upcoming early childhood professional development events, including our NESA endorsed courses. Payments are taken via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account simply chose their 'pay with a card' option to pay with credit card. We are also happy to accept direct deposit payments if you prefer. Simply email us your preferences and we will invoice you for your tickets!
