The Early Childhood Teachers' Association is a not-for-profit association of volunteers dedicated to providing relevant and current professional development to our early childhood colleagues. Held annually on the first Saturday of the state school holidays for forty-two years.

Directions to the conference venue

Sheldon Event Centre is located within the grounds of Sheldon College. Sheldon lies just to the east of Queensland's capital city, Brisbane.
Your navigation system - 1 Taylor Road Thornlands.

The drive from the Mt Gravatt - Capalaba Road exit from Gateway Motorway is quite long and relatively undeveloped with lots of bushland along the way so it is an easy drive once off the Gateway.
