On Call ECT can help

We assist:

  • Early childhood services with less than 25 children attending.
  • Kindergartens and preschools with less than 25 children attending.
  • Remote location early childhood services, kindergarten and preschools – no limit to the number of children attending.
  • Any service with a team who would benefit from a knowledgeable and experienced ECT. We don’t just help meet regulations- we can also provide ongoing assistance with programming, mentoring and inspiration to improve your team’s skills and safe you time!

On Call ECT covers all aspects of Regulation 130 (Requirement for early childhood teacher – centre based services – fewer than 25 approved places) And Regulation 239A (Centre-based services in remote and very remote areas – attendance of early childhood teachers)

How we can help

Many small child care services fail to meet the requirement for ECTs due to industry shortage of qualified ECTs, and are therefore forced to apply for a waiver. This is how we can help:

  • Establish a collaborative relationship with clients
  • Support the educators and team with the implementation of the approved learning frameworks
  • Support children’s wellbeing, learning and development
  • Ensure attention to developing the educational program and assist the services to build relationships with children and families
  • Assist the staff in meeting the elements of the National Quality Standards.

We cover the required 20% or 40% ‘access’ to an ECT

An On Call ECT weekly consultation will cover the required 20% or 40% of operational time for your childhood service.

Supporting Continuous Improvement

Many educators find developing planning cycles to be most challenging.
We are focused on ensuring our customers are comfortable with collecting meaningful documentation and understanding the full planning cycle process.

We also understand that many educators find analysing learning and critical reflection to be difficult.

We are always striving to find the simplest and most supportive ways to guide them – and we think we have done just that!

About On Call ECT

Meet Michelle, our dedicated and passionate Director. With her wealth of knowledge and experience, Michelle is a true advocate for quality education in the early years.

Michelle Marais - On Call ECT National Coordinator


I wanted to say a huge thank you for the incredible support and guidance you have given us! I love to see all the ideas and contributions you send! All the information has been super useful for our center.

Macarena – Amigoss Spanish Preschool, NSW

I have to tell you how happy we are with OnCall ECT. I finally feel after 16 years here at Lyndhurst that we are finally getting the programming done correctly. We’ve always programmed but I’ve always felt there was something that just wasn’t right or it wasn’t flowing. I think we still have a little way to go but with everything you are doing to assist us it is making things so much easier for me at least. I truly appreciate it.

Jackie – Lyndhurst Children’s Centre & Lyndhurst Preschool

I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying reading the weekly reports. It is really making me think about so many different ways that we can improve. It is helping with our overall planning and we are realising how much we need to write down. It is also making our team reflect on all our practices and we are a much better team because of it.

Jen, Kaleen Cubbyhouse, ACT

We think On Call ECT is fantastic and helpful in every way. Not only there for feedback but the ongoing support is fantastic.

The educators are loving the weekly reports, this helps look at things in a different way.

Fiona – Smart Kids Child Care Centre – Coonamble

Can highly recommend On Call ECT to services either remote or with licensed places for less than 25 children.

We have recently taken the plunge and couldn’t be happier.

Roz – Leonora Early Learning Centre

My team are absolutely loving the communication. So easy getting it off Xplor too.
