Early Childhood Australia


Early Childhood Australia (ECA) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been a voice for children since 1938.  ECA's vision is that every young child is thriving and learning. To achieve this, ECA champion the rights of young children to thrive and learn at home, in the community, within early learning settings and through the early years of school. ECA's work builds the capacity of our society and the early childhood sector to realise the potential of every child during the critical early years from birth to the age of eight. ECA specifically acknowledges the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families, and the past and current injustices and realities for them around Australia.

ECA offer a range of quality best-practice resources for early childhood professionals through a range of quarterly publications, The ECA Shop and The Learning Hub online professional learning platform.

The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) is an independent national authority that assists governments in implementing the National Quality Framework (NQF) for children's education and care.



The Australian Government’s child care package provides more support for more families and is targeted at those who need it most. Now fully implemented, it represents the most significant change to the early learning and care system in 40 years.

The Australian Government is committed to ensuring Australian families are able to access early learning and care by:

  • assisting families with the cost of child care through fee assistance
  • publishing information about early learning and child care services, and 
  • contributing to a national approach to the regulation and quality assessment of early learning and child care services.
