Our 2020 Conference! 

Welcome to the homepage of ACA Victoria's upcoming 2020 Excellence in ECEC Conference.


We invite you and your team to join us for two days of learning, networking and light-hearted fun at the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne on Friday 14th & Saturday 15th August.

This year our theme Include, Motivate, Stimulate focuses on the importance of access to high quality early learning for all children from difference backgrounds and developmental levels, as well as the value of continuing learning and a growth mindset for people working in the sector.


In addition to our traditional program of expert keynote presentations, break out sessions and our expansive set of exhibitors, this year our Approved Provider Breakfast and our Mix & Mingle drinks function will open the door to even more opportunities to meet your peers in the sector and join the discussions on the latest issues.


We invite you to explore these pages, peruse the program and our selection of inspiring speakers and register your team for this not-to-be-missed professional development event.

We look forward to seeing you in August!
