ELAA and Gowrie Victoria are proud to present an outstanding program of speakers – our largest yet – for 2017 Early Childhood Education Conference.
Please note: when you select a session in the online registration form you are booking into BOTH* the presentations allocated to that session e.g. if you selected session B1 then you will be booked into the presentations by Mary Howell / Dr Caroline Cohrssen (1.30pm-2.15pm) AND Sue Southey (2.15pm-3.00pm). It is expected that delegates will remain in the room for the duration of both sessions.
*With the exception of when there is only one presentation in a session.
New! Federal assistance for early learning services from disadvantaged or remote communities
We are excited to announce that the Australian Department of Education and Training has committed to providing financial assistance to assist services from disadvantaged or remote communities throughout Australia to attend the Conference. This is in addition to the existing assistance offered by the Victorian Government, by ELAA and by Gowrie Victoria to assist delegates from regional areas and disadvantaged communities.
The funding from the Federal Government will cover delegate’s registration costs and will be limited to either one or two days Conference registration (travel and accommodation costs not included).
To apply for the Federal funding, please tell us in 250 words or less what type of early childhood service you provide; why your organisation requests this assistance; and who you would like to attend the conference.
Please send applications to Tania De Carli at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 19 May 2017.

To apply for this special funding, please tell us in 250 words or less what type of early childhood service you provide; why your organisation requests this assistance; and who you would like to attend the conference. A panel of the Conference Reference Committee will review applications and select the recipients.
