Thank you to our early childhood educators


The Hon Dan Tehan MP
Minister for Education

Minister for Education Dan Tehan has acknowledged the extraordinary commitment of Australia’s early childhood educators who continue to support families through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr Tehan said the early childhood sector has provided vital education and care for our children in unprecedented times.

“This year has brought many challenges and uncertainties for families, but early childhood educators have always been there for our children and communities across the country,” Mr Tehan said.

“Today on Early Childhood Educators’ Day we recognise and celebrate the crucial work of our early learning educators.

“They make a wonderful contribution to the wellbeing and healthy development of the young children in their care, and are unsung heroes for many parents, particularly those essential workers.

“I encourage parents, families and communities across Australia to let educators know how much they are appreciated, and to say thanks for their dedication to the children in their care.”
