ECE conference Yeah Baby logo

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 workshops 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.

This year we will be bringing our Yeah Baby! conferences to the following regions:
