02 JunELAA CEO update 2 June 2021
Dear ELAA members and friends
I hope you are all keeping safe and well, especially our Victorian members as the State enters a week-long extension to the current increased restrictions that have come into place since the previous edition of eNews. ELAA will keep you updated on any key COVID related developments affecting Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services via editions of our Special eNews and our COVID-19 Frequently Answered Questions page.
As ELAA members would now be aware, our membership renewal period has begun. Make sure you retain access to our member advisory service; tailored resources for service management; great discounts on products, services, training, and specialist consultancies; sector news; and member-only updates on key issues by renewing your membership today. We’re also encouraging non-members to find out more about all the benefits ELAA offers Early Childhood Education Service providers and to take the opportunity to sign up to an ELAA membership. More information on renewing memberships and joining ELAA can be found by CLICKING HERE .
In more news, we’re thrilled to be able to announce that our telephone advisory service will resume next Monday, 7 June. As you would be aware our advisory service has been operating via email only since the start of the Pandemic. New investment in technology now enables us to re-open the telephone advisory service regardless of whether our member solutions team are based in the office or at home. The phone service will initially run on limited hours as we trial the technology and call volumes but our existing email enquiry service will continue to be monitored during normal business hours. More details HERE .
I encourage you to read this week’s edition of eNews which includes important updates on a new EAP opportunity for ECEC staff in Victoria; a reminder for your parents to complete an important DESE survey regarding child care; information on Child Care Subsidy Provider Eligible Enrolment changes; and much more.
Please take care in these challenging times and stay safe.
