Yeah Baby!

Yeah Baby! is a specialist conference concerned with the education and care of our infants from birth to three years of age. This one day conference runs from 9am-3pm, includes a packed lunch, trade fair, and great seminar and workshop style presentations. The format for the day ensures delegates will return to their early childhood settings affirmed and inspired with topics covered all relevant to work and play with children under 3.

Every year brings a fresh new line-up of content. So participants are welcome to attend annually and will gain new knowledge every time. Speakers will also vary between regions.

We will be bringing our Yeah Baby! conferences to the following regions in New Zealand and Australia:

Childspace Conference 2025!

Save the date!

Hot off the success of Ketekete Mai, Childspace is gearing up for another conference in Wellington, taking place October 10-11, 2025. 2025 marks 20 years of The Space magazine and just over 20 years since Childspace’s first conference, and there will be celebrations of this legacy as well as lots of opportunities for learning, networking, and fun.

If Childspace cancels a course for any reason, a full refund will be made.

If you need to withdraw from a course, a full refund will be made, providing that we have at least 7 days’ written notice (prior to the course date) to [email protected]. If a withdrawal is made within 7 days of the course date due to unavoidable circumstances, a refund may be made, less an administration fee of 25% of the course fee. In this case we recommend that you send a replacement person. In the case of non-attendance on a course without notice, no refund will be made. Enrolment on a course constitutes acceptance of this policy.
