Widely recognised as Australia’s premier family day care event, Family Day Care Australia (FDCA) would like to offer individuals and organisations the opportunity to present alongside keynote speakers and stakeholders at the FDCA 2021 National Conference.
This is your chance to stand out from the crowd and rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector, including Dr Helen May, Emeritus Professor of Education at the University of Otago, and Jay Laga'aia, renowned actor, entertainer and father of eight.
Whether you are a seasoned participant or a first time attendee, presenting at the FDCA 2021 National Conference is a professional opportunity second to none. We welcome submissions on a range of topics that appeal to the unique and varied experiences of our members, and which will enrich the work of FDCA in representing, supporting, and promoting the family day care sector.
If you are passionate about your work and hungry to share your expertise onstage to an audience of family day care professionals from across the country, this is the platform for you.
To assist you in developing your abstract, FDCA has provided a collection of themes that you may wish to consider:
Demonstrating excellence in family day care and ECEC
Contemporary issues in society and ECEC
Technology in family day care and ECEC
Business management in family day care

Abstract review and selection
Due to high demand and limited session numbers, FDCA is unable to provide feedback on all of the abstracts we receive. When drafting your abstract, please note that interactive sessions will receive preference over non-interactive oral presentations.
Successful applicants will be informed no later than 26 February 2021.
If you are selected to present, you will have the flexibility to choose either a 60 or 90 minute slot for your presentation, with individual and workshop sessions welcome.
