We have an exciting program consisting of topics on wellbeing, self care, sector challenges and much more delivered by industry expects

Join Our Online Community

This is therefore a pivotal moment in time for Kingdom impact in the education and care sector.

Our online community is a valuable platform for Christian Early Learning providers to discuss and share regulatory information, access sector-specific resources, and work together to achieve success and make a nationwide impact. Through this community, we can ensure that our voice is heard and our mandate is secured.

Commencing in early April, our community hub will initially be hosted in an easily accessible FACEBOOK GROUP with a purpose-built forum to launch just after Retreat in September 2023!
