ECDA Fellows

About ECDA Fellows

The EC​DA Fellows programme is one of ECDA’s key initiatives to recognise sectoral leaders in the early childhood p​​rofession and expand opportunities for them to further develop their careers and to fulfil their aspirations.


The ECDA Fellows are a select group of exemplary early childhood professionals with high levels of leadership and professional expertise. They work closely with ECDA to drive quality improvements of the sector, develop sector-wide resources, inspire and contribute to the professional growth of the current and next generation of early childhood leaders.
