Joining ELAA is like having a whole other team of early childhood education and care experts just a phone call or mouse click away. We’re here for early childhood providers who want to nurture their staff and jump in ‘boots and all’ to do their best for every child in their care … every single day, no matter what.
When you join ELAA it’s like instantly gaining an IR and HR team for your service. ELAA Full and Subscriber members can contact our Member Solutions team for personalised advice and support on the governance of your service, payroll, management responsibilities, industrial relations, human resource management, Occupational Health and Safety, Road Safety Education policy and advice, Professional Development and much more. Your query is usually handled by one ELAA team member so you’ll get consistency and follow up when needed and peace of mind knowing that the advice you receive is backed by the collective Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector expertise in the ELAA team.
Don’t lose your voice! Be part of ELAA’s collective voice that advocates to all levels of government on issues that matter to the Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) sector.
ELAA has been instrumental in getting the Victorian Government to provide fee relief to funded and unfunded kindergarten programs during COVID-19. We’ve also been successful in advocating for other support like extra funding to help towards increased cleaning requirements.
We speak directly to the Australian Government with the message that child care service providers need ongoing, scalable support during the pandemic. This is in addition to our long running advocacy for fairness and equity when it comes to children from vulnerable families accessing early childhood education and care; seeking a long-term commitment from the Australian Government on funding universal access to a weekly minimum of 15 hours of teacher lead early learning for three and four-year-olds; annual Victorian and Federal budget submissions to support our sector; and targeted campaigns on matters like ensuring financial sustainability for EYMs in Victoria.
ELAA can also represent your service in sector industrial relations negotiations and we’re currently representing some 400 services during the renegotiation of the Victorian Early Childhood Teachers and Educators Agreement.
