Child Australia, in partnership with the Northern Territory Government, is proud to present the 2023 Little People, Big Dreams Conference.

For the past four years the conference has been a sold-out event, inspiring individuals working in the Early Childhood Education & Care sector from around Australia.

The theme this year is: play, engage, reflect. Educators can expect to gain insights into the vital role of play in children’s development, learn how to authentically engage children in confident and creative learning, and explore the power of reflection to evaluate and adjust practices for unique place-based learning, inspiring future goals.
