3rd Infants and Toddlers Conference

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

29 Wally’s Walk, Macquarie University


It has been 30 years since the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. During this time, many questions have been asked about how human rights can and should apply to very young children, in particular infants and toddlers. In this 3rd Infants and Toddlers conference, we aim to tackle some of these questions.

How can infant-toddler educators uphold the human rights of our youngest children? What about the rights of educators and how do these impact on those of the child? How might ideas about human rights vary across communities and cultures?

In this conference, we bring together practitioners, researchers, and advocates to discuss and debate these questions and more. A packed program, including keynote addresses, presentations by educators and researchers, and discussion panels will ensure that there will be lively conversations and debate. In this way, we uphold our theme – A right to learn – A right to thrive – for both our youngest children and the dedicated professionals who are committed to their care and education.

Our Aims:

  • provide a focused time and space for critical debate and reflective discussion about contemporary approaches to infant-toddler education and care
  • support the development of a support network for those working in, researching and managing infant-toddler education and care programs
  • enhance the professionalisation and profile of specialised infant-toddler practice, pedagogy and research
