Families and children

If you have a child who attends an early learning service (long day care centre-based), a kindergarten or preschool program, family day care or occasional care, Early Childhood Educators Day is the perfect opportunity to say 'thank you' to your educators in your own special way, whether on Wednesday 5th September or during the same week.
Together, you and your child/children might like to:
  • make a 'thank you' card or a home-made gift
  • create some art - a drawing, painting or decoration
    (click here for some great ideas!)
  • write a short story or poem about why he/she loves his/her early childhood educator
  • pick some flowers from your garden
  • make or bake something delicious to bring in on the day
  • decorate and colour one of the printable cut out shapes on our Resources webpage 
  • join in the fun activities that your local service may be organising as part of the celebrations

Post your photos to win some great prizes!

Post photos of your Early Childhood Educators Day cards, gifts, baked treats or celebrations to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using our hashtag #LoveMyECE (so we can easily find them), for the chance to win:
  • one of 2x $150 gift vouchers from Modern Teaching Aids

  • one of 5 X Happy Feet Fitness birthday party sessions*

    *To be eligible you must live in the metropolitan area of Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide or Perth.

We will announce the winners on the Latest News section of this website on Monday 10th September, as well as via social media.
