Early Learning Association Australia (ELAA) promotes the voice of parents in quality early childhood education for Victorian children, serving more than 200,000 children and their families. Our membership is made up of over 1200 early childhood education and care providers such as:

  • community managed kindergartens
  • cluster managers
  • long day care services
  • childcare centres
  • independent schools
  • private child care centres
  • local governments. 

ELAA has extensive expertise in occupational health and safety issues from years of experience as an employer organisation. This has enabled ELAA to develop various occupational health and safety education and training resources, as well as the capacity to offer occupational health and safety training courses.
