Early Childhood Educators Day 2018 goes off with a bang!

On Wednesday 5th September, early learning service owners across Australia, along with the families using their services, took the time to say thank you to their early childhood educators for their wonderful efforts!

Whilst services and families chose to say thank you in their own special way, the one thing their activities all had in common was a sense of heartfelt appreciation. The warm sentiments and the sense of community was unifying.

We took a look at some of the fun ways that services and families celebrated their early childhood educators and said thank you, through the photos that were posted to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using hashtags #LoveMyECE and #EarlyChildhoodEducatorsDay

Giggles Early Learning in Smithton Tasmania are featured in the header photo, enjoying being given a beautiful bunch of flowers from one of the children at the centre. :)


Meanwhile over in Queensland, Goodstart Early Learning Coorparoo - Tiber Street had envelopes with photos of educators on display, for families and children to pop their thank you notes and/or artwork into.

At Blinkies Early Education Centre in New Lambton NSW, educators were each given a beautiful bunch of flowers to start the day with a smile. :)

At Treasure Island Child Care Centre in Cannington WA, educators were treated to Early Childhood Educators Day cupcakes, certificates of appreciation and some wonderful goodie bags!

At Lakeview Preschool in Primbee NSW, a cleverly labeled selection of sweet treats were well appreciated! 

At Starbright ELC in Booragoon WA, the celebrations included a delicious Early Childhood Educators Day cake. Yum!

There was tons of laughter and light-hearted fun to be had at Childs World Early Learning Centres in Cairns QLD!


Meanwhile the children and their families got creative with some fun ways to say thank you...

These are just some of the many, many beautiful photos that were posted as part of Early Childhood Educators Day yesterday! 

You can view more of these photos from all around Australia on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter - just type  #LoveMyECE or #EarlyChildhoodEducatorsDay into the search function to bring them up. 

Heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who shared their photos, for the whole of Australia to enjoy. Being able to see the many varied celebrations across the country really added to the community spirit of the day!

We hope that every one of Australia's early childhood educators enjoyed the celebrations and ended the day feeling truly recognised and appreciated. :)
