The essential early and middle childhood education and care story.

We're telling it louder, we're sharing it wider, and we're making your voice stronger

About Community Early Learning Australia

Community Early Learning Australia™ is the peak body for Australia’s early and middle childhood education sector. We believe all children deserve quality early education and care.

Created by Community Child Care Co-operative, built on tradition and prepared for the future. Our mission is to amplify early learning’s value throughout Australia.


  • We amplify early learning’s value by informing families, influencing policy-makers, and inspiring educators.
  • We support evidence-based research, grassroots consultation, and common sense action.
  • We actively unite both community based and small provider ECEC services under one banner of support for community benefit and purpose before profit.

You can learn more about us here or follow us here on Facebook or Twitter.
