The joint initiative between Aussie Farmers Direct and Australia’s largest hunger relief organisation, Foodbank, encourages Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services to get involved by organising their own fund-raising activities within their centres, and then forwarding the funds to the ACA to enable a collective purchase of food boxes for this worthy cause.
ACA and Maggie Dent have joined forces to stress the need for parents and educators to work together
When parents and early childhood educators work together to form positive, trusting relationships, they can make a real difference to young children’s lives. Unfortunately modern life doesn't make forming these relationships easy; many parents struggle to find the time in their working day to be present in their child's early learning environment.
The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) has paired up with parenting and resilience specialist Maggie Dent, to help families and early learning services understand the importance of building these relationships, and the many benefits that these positive connections bring about for their children.
