The capacity of early childhood educators to function well at work is critical to providing high-quality programs for children. Yet, researchers and policy makers have been slow to investigate influences on educator wellbeing from the perspectives of organisations that employ them. Investigating these perspectives can contribute to improved work environments through reduced absenteeism, turnover, injury and accident rates and high levels of employee morale and motivation. Ultimately, it can contribute to the health of educators and sustaining the early childhood workforce.

ECV2020 is organised by the Charles Sturt University Early Childhood Research Group, and is an opportunity to present research in a virtual online space. 2020 has been a challenging year, and COVID-19 has altered the way in which we do many things, including research. Many conferences have been cancelled or postponed. ECV2020 provides researchers with the opportunity to present work that they been unable to present in other forums, research that they have been working on during the year, and/or work that responds to challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic.
