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 all of our events. Ticket holders to events will be advised of postponements and cancellations as more updates come through from 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 apologise for the 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!
