What do our members say about us?
Members of CCSA report how much they value our information and support, because it is specific to the early childhood sector.
“Just being on the end of the phone for ANY questions, concerns, support and advice about ANY topic relating to staff, management, parent, child, government, legal etc issues is invaluable.”
“I have found that any time I want to clarify anything relevant to early childhood education, CCSA has been prompt and knowledgeable.”
“I love CCSA as it has supported me and our preschool every time we need advice and I have grown in my role due to this support. It is so valuable that CCSA is politically aware of what is happening and can break down factors that may seem confusing and provide advice or procedures that inform us about what to do. They have always been so supportive and interested in our service, following through on issues and always advocating for best practice and outcomes. I feel they really work in partnership with us and I could not do my job as well as I do without this. I always highly recommend them to other services.” #
