Coffee Roulettes thus far ...

Notwithstanding the challenges of lockdown restrictions, the following are some of our visits to the Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) NSW members and bringing coffee whenever possible!


This is in addition to ACA NSW's existing engagement platforms (eg Network Meetings, Quickies, Wheels On The Bus Tours and the Excellence in Early Childhood Education Awards).


ACA NSW looks forward to visiting more members both near and far as part of its Coffee Roulette programme to listen and provide additional support wherever possible. ACA NSW members can also request visits via 1300 556 330 or nsw@childcarealliance.org.au.
