What Members are Saying

” I joined ECTA in the 1990s for the support, inspiration and friendship of like minded teachers. When I moved to Brisbane, I struck a school with many issues which were very difficult to handle.  If it wasn’t for the support of the teachers involved in ECTA my teaching career most certainly would have ended 15 years earlier than it did.”

Jenny Caswell

“I love being a member of ECTA because they offer face-to face and online networking with like-minded colleagues. It’s great to have ECTA being a voice for those working in the early years, making connections and advocating for best practice in the early years. They also offer great and relevant early years professional development opportunities which I love to attend – both in personal and online.”

Lisa Cooper

” I have enjoyed the networking and advocacy opportunities provided by being an ECTA member for many years.  ECTA has continually advocated for best practice in Early Childhood Educations and given me personally an opportunity to advocate for our region and the sector.  Through ECTA’s continual support of regional groups, we have had increased access to professional development, network and opportunities to have our voice heard.”
