60 years of Under Eights Week

60 years of Under Eights Week

This year Queensland is celebrating ‘60 years of Under Eights Week!’.

Introduced by Early Childhood Australia Queensland Branch, the annual event is a time to celebrate being under 8 years of age. This year’s theme is Early Learning, Everyone Benefits.

Children are curious, creative and playful. They are naturally interested in the world around them. It is vital that a young child’s love of learning is nurtured and encouraged through a variety of experiences. As parents and carers, we often don’t realise the learning opportunities in the everyday activities our children engage in. Learning through play, investigation and exploration is easy and valuable for children in the early years, and it is through these positive learning experiences that our kids will develop a lifelong love of learning.
