This years’ ECEW Awards were highly competitive with centre providers and educators showcasing their outstanding achievements in the categories of their choice.  The return of the Early Childhood Education Week and its accompanying Awards Night Celebration was enormously well received with numerous Category Winners thanking ACA NSW in their Winners Speech for bringing it back. These awards celebrate and acknowledge teams that demonstrated national best practice in early childhood excellence, passion, vision and a commitment to assisting children to achieve their potential. This is a testament to the outstanding work and commitment to improving early childhood education outcomes in our nation’s youngest children.
