“We leverage our scale and reach to lead exceptional early learning outcomes for all of our youngest Australians”


Through collaboration ELACCA will drive informed innovation in the early learning sector

We advocate the right of children and their families to access quality early learning and care, particularly for children facing disadvantages.

We promote greater public investment in quality early learning and care to improve affordability and access for families and enhance Australia’s future economic prosperity.
