WE HELP YOU TO KNOW
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EARLY EDUCATION AND CHILDCARE
This website is your place to go for fresh thinking, practical advice, policy guidance, the latest news, original research and analysis - it's all here in one place and at your fingertips!
You can comment on articles - adding your own thoughts or passing on ideas that have worked- or ask questions and get feedback from colleagues around the country and the world.
Here you will find information on a wide range of subjects to assist you in your own research or studies, teaching and caring for young children, operating an ECE business, making sense of policy changes and understanding requirements, and much more. You'll find plenty of things to interest you.
You will also love the opportunity to be part of our nation-wide network bringing together different early childhood services and groups from across the sector, owners, teachers, and families, along with relevant people such as early childhood researchers, teacher educators, policy officials, academics, health experts, and parent education providers.
To learn more about ChildForum go to the About Us page
We all want our young children to experience the best possible care and early education at home, in early childhood services, and in our communities. But to achieve this all adults and services need access to the best information and opportunity to think critically about practice and develop their skills, abilities, and knowledge. Contribute to and be part of this effort by joining us. To join click here for membership information. Membership is open to individuals, as well as early childhood services, regional organisations, and institutions.
Should you be looking for a good early childhood service, ask the services you visit if a current membership with ChildForum is held because our ECE service members are expected to meet both the Code of Ethical Conduct for ECE Services and the Code of Rights for Children
