A partnership worth your time

Our collaboration with ECA will save valuable time and money, providing you with over $100 worth of education and training annually at no extra cost!  

Each course can be completed from the comfort of your home, or in the company of your colleagues, at a pace that suits you.

Over 25 courses that “speak the language” of educators

Finding professional development opportunities that address the unique framework, standards and requirements under which family day care operates can be a labor-intensive process.

You want to be sure that the time you put into professional development delivers practical and meaningful benefits, from verified early childhood professionals and experts in the field.

As one of Australia’s premier sources of early childhood knowledge, research and development, you can be confident that the ECA and FDCA Learning Hub will meet your high standards in online learning and result in quality outcomes for yourself, your colleagues and your team.

Here are just some of the exciting new courses you will be able to access as part of this groundbreaking partnership:

  • Playing with gratitude;
  • Supporting children's self-regulation;
  • Reconciliation in action;
  • Using critical reflection;
  • Maths is everywhere; and
  • Delving deeper into documenting and assessing.
