Early Childhood

In 2008, the Education Services Union (ESU) merged with the Kindergarten and Childcare Centre Staff Union (KCCSU) with the intention to create greater recognition for and fulfil training and development aspirations of our early childhood professionals.

Since then, ESU has grown to be a strong and credible advocate for professionals in the early childhood sector which includes but not limited to principals, teachers, administrative and centre support staff.

Our continued engagements with industry stakeholders and tripartite partners have improved salaries, as well as created better career progression pathways and recognition for our working people in early childhood.
