ECC update

Changes to the online user experience

Detailing the recent changes to the user experience of the ECC website and the new Member Portal.

More information

We're thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new website and Member Portal, designed to make finding the information you need easier! It's also a bit of a facelift from the previous look we had.

Our new website better reflects the professional nature of ECC and the important work we do. We are the leading body for childcare centre owners and managers in New Zealand and are committed to enabling you to deliver quality education and care for our nation's children.

What are the key changes?

Member Portal

The Member Portal is your new way to access our tools and resources, register for events and view other member-only content. We've designed this to make it easier to find what you are looking for, and to allow you to easily update your details.

Login details from the old ECC website are no longer valid and will need to be reset. The key contact at your organisation should have received an email to set up their account on the portal. If you do not have this email, please contact

Member discount code

A discount code is now required to access your member discount. You can find this at the top of the member portal, note that there are a few different codes for certain products.

Events and Professional Development

All of our event ticketing and registration will be done through Humanitix. You do not need to be logged in to register for events. Members will need to apply their discount code at checkout.

You can view all of our upcoming events on our host profile. Members can also view all of our upcoming events in the portal.

For new members

Our new online application form and fee calculator makes it easier than ever to join ECC as a member.

Your bookmarks should still work

We have set up redirects, so all your bookmarks and links should work as normal.

If you notice any old links that don’t work, contact

Got feedback or experiencing issues?

We will continue to make improvements to the website and the Member Portal.
