Established in 2014, the ECA Learning Hub is highly regarded for its contemporary and evidence-based library of courses. Through FDCA’s Member Zone, you’ll gain access to a suite of more than 45 online modules housed on our partnered Learning Hub as part of your FDCA membership.
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 45 modules 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.
