As a leader in the early childhood sector the ECC hosts New Zealand’s largest annual early childhood conference. Participants include centre managers, committee members, owners, staff, students, government officials, training providers and anyone with an interest in the care and education of children under five.
As part of its professional development programme the ECC runs a series of workshops throughout the year. These events are designed to:
- target specific areas of the early childhood sector
- provide high-quality professional development opportunities for staff and management
- encourage a growing and supportive network of early childhood teachers, supervisors, owners, and managers.
