Windows To Early Learning Environments

ECTA Cairns Regional Group invites you to have a peek at different Early Childhood Settings and to network with other Early Childhood Professionals. Each term, an Early Childhood Centre (Day Care, Kindergarten, Prep/School) will have an Open Morning for an hour, when you can come and view the indoor setting, outdoor environment and resources used.


Our first Open Morning will be held at Bayview Heights Community Kindergarten, 6-8 Jasper Street, Woree on

Saturday 13th March 9.30 to 10.30am.


Due to COVID19 restrictions, there will be no catering, but you can BYO (tea/coffee/water). You will need to register your name, email and mobile contact details on arrival. Digital Certificates of Attendance will be issued afterwards by email.

Sincere thanks to Barb Powell and the Cairns early childhood community.
