Early learning service providers are encouraged to celebrate Early Childhood Educators' Day by organising their own activities involving their educators, their children and their families on Wednesday 2nd September 2020 or during the same week. 

Scroll below for our checklist and some fun ideas!

Tell your families and educators it's coming...

Let your families know about the day leading up to the event, by putting up some posters (available on the Resources page here - stay tuned for our 2020 Resources) in your communal areas, using the printed posters as handouts to parents, putting out a notice to families via your email newsletter and/or posting on social media.


(You can also share our posts - follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).


While at home, the children may like to:

  • make a card with their own art on the front cover
  • make a simple home-made gift (eg. a pot plant, daisy chain or pasta necklace)
  • pick a bunch of flowers from the garden
  • bake a cake with Mum or Dad to be enjoyed at a morning tea with their early childhood educator 
  • dress up in fancy dress before attending the day

While at your early learning centre/service, the children may like to join in one or more of the suggested activities below.

Organise one or more of the following activities in your centre/service:

  • Create an early childhood educator appreciation wall or ‘thank you' tree using the printable 'cut out shape' templates provided on the Resources page for the children to decorate

  • Create a giant 'thank you' card for families to write in and put it on display in the reception/greeting area of your centre/service 

  • Organise a morning or afternoon tea party and invite families to bring home-baked goodies, presents and cards

  • Present your team of educators each with a certificate of appreciation using the printable templates on the Resources page. 

Post your photos on social media to win some fun prizes!

If your social media account is set up to be publicly viewable, you can post photos of your celebrations to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using our hashtag #EarlyChildhoodEducatorsDay for the chance to win some fun prizes.


We'll provide more detail about these in July 2020.
