In this busy world we are lucky to be able to have many ways to stay in contact and in the know, both professionally and personally. It is important however to make the time for real life, face-to-face interactions to learn and share with others.
In the early childhood sector there are so many valuable opportunities available to us to learn and share with likeminded individuals in the industry. Let’s take a look at just a couple that are coming up in August!
ACA Victoria Excellence in ECE Conference 2019
When: August 16 and 17
Where: Crown Conference Centre, 8 Whiteman Street, Southbank, VIC
What: With engaging keynotes, break out sessions for those operating services, teachers and educators, this year’s ACA Victoria Excellence in ECE Conference is set to inspire. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘the magic of childhood’ and will explore and celebrate the marvels and wonder of childhood. The theme also allows exploration of the role of early learning to enhance this special time of life and its magic, through physical, emotional and social development. Don’t miss the large trade exhibition and many networking opportunities, plus an Activity Hub to get really hands-on! Come and say hello to Galina at the Bonkers Beat booth at the trade exhibition!
Get Ready 2019
When: August 23, 2019
Where: Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center
What: This conference is centers around preparing children for school, particularly relevant with kindergartens across Victoria set to access the School Readiness Funding (SRF) initiative over the coming three years. Join the high value workshops and seminars to explore topics around preparing and supporting children in their school transition, as well as how educators, families and communities can better collaborate to deliver the optimal educational journey. Galina will be there too, presenting on the subject ‘In Tune with the Future: Developing 7 Critical Life Skills Through Music’!
Of course these are just in Melbourne and we do hope to see you!
More broadly, we’d love to know: what is your favorite early childhood education conference to attend each year? Is there one that you simply can’t miss?
Hope to see you at an early childhood education conference or event soon!
(Don’t forget, Bonkers Beat program members also get access to two exclusive conferences each year for their whole team to attend — and it’s all included with your Bonkers Beat program! Learn more.)
