Early Childhood Educators’ Day was founded in 2011 in Brisbane, Queensland by the Australian Childcare Alliance’s Queensland state body, to recognise and celebrate the work of early childhood educators in early learning services for their contribution to the wellbeing and healthy development of Australia’s precious, youngest generation.
The event was inspired by World Teachers’ Day, an annual event which is celebrated every October in more than 100 countries.
Since its inaugural celebration in 2011, Early Childhood Educators’ Day has enjoyed increasing participation Australia-wide from year to year among the early learning sector along with the broader community.
It is now a well-known, fondly-received event held every year Australia-wide on the first Wednesday of September.
The Australian Childcare Alliance is immensely proud of the ongoing success of Early Childhood Educators’ Day and the role it plays in raising awareness of the benefits of early learning and the very important role that our educators play in giving Australia’s youngest children the best start in life.
