ECC Conference 2022



Take time away from the business to reconnect with other professionals, and to invest in your team's professional development and growth.

Be the first to hear from Hon Chris Hipkins, Minister of Education about what’s next in the early childhood sector and how this will affect staff, parents and our tamariki. The ECC Conference is the only early childhood event the Minister has announced for the year. Our keynote speakers also feature philanthropist Tupe Solomon Tanoa’I, neurodiversity specialist Kathryn Berkett and Childspace founders Toni and Robin Christie. More information on our speakers can be found here.

Our workshops cover an extensive range of issues and topics in the early childhood sector which are not to be missed. Let our experts guide you through pay parity, compliance and success in innovation and leadership as well as a range of teacher focused workshops. They are designed to provide you with a year’s worth of professional development in one day. You will leave conference with a new set of skills and a clear path to success leading into the busy end of the year. See the full programme of workshops here.

Don’t miss out on our gala dinner which includes Wellington Paranormal’s Karen O’Leary as the dinner speaker, live music and a bar to cut loose after all your hard work. Bring your best beads and feathers, there is a prize for best dressed!
