2019 Conference

Welcome to the home page of our 2019 Excellence in Early Childhood Education and Care Conference.

This year our theme is the magic of childhood, which celebrates the wonder of childhood and the importance of early learning in all children’s physical, cognitive, emotional and social development. Attendance at our conference will be sure to revive your joy in the "Magic of childhood" and early learning.




This year our venue is once again Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne and the Conference will take place on Friday 16th & Saturday 17th August.


We invite you to explore these pages that show why our conference is a "not-to-be-missed" event in the early learning calendar and urge you to register so you don't miss out!


Engaging and expert keynote presentations, break out sessions for service operators, early childhood teachers and educators, an expansive trade exhibition and opportunities for networking all add to the appeal of our highly-regarded event.


What's new in 2019?

Aside from a fabulous program of topics and speakers, Dr Red Ruby Scarlet will be in attendance for the whole conference as our Pedagogical Artist in Residence guiding you to create a collaborative art work which will be sure to inspire future activity in your service.


The Activity Hub will allow for additional hands-on fun and learning and the whole event will be imbued with the #ACAVMagicOfChildhood


We can't wait to see you there!!
