In late 2019, we were offered the great privilege of taking up guest editorship on this special issue on the early childhood education and care (ECEC) workforce. The changing academic climate in Australia and personal circumstances had made it impossible for the originating editors of the special issue to continue. Our sincere thanks to Yarrow Andrew, Lara Corr, Karen Sinclair and Hani Yulindrasari, who,through this issue provide an invitation to contest notions of work in ECEC. We have endeavoured to honour their conceptual and theoretical framework, and have curated an issue that we hope provides opportunities for ‘thinking otherwise’ (Ball, 1998: 81) about the ECEC workforce.
