"As a member of two early years networks, I am a big advocate for using the Early Years network portal. This resource has been a bit of dream for many years – that one place to go to connect with each other and share resources with other early years groups. It is great to see this dream come  to fruition and see so many people using it. The more of us that are on there, the better it will become, so I highly recommend signing up if you haven’t already and check out all of the resources, start sharing stories and connect with other networks across the state."

“Members of the Pilbara Early Years Group Network, as part of the WACOSS Connecting Early Years Portal find the view ahead with the training and presentations calendar of events, most valuable.  This information allows regional people to view not only online webinars coming up months in advance, but also the training and presentation opportunities coming to regional centres, as well those being provided in Perth.  It’s vital for regional members to have a clear view well in advance of what’s on offer, given that both staffing and travel/distance challenges, are ever present”.
