G8 Education’s Head of Early Learning and Education Ali Evans has been appointed to the Early Childhood Australia National Board.

The announcement follows Ali’s most recent role with ECA as Queensland Chair, and also her recent appointment to the Thriving Queensland Kids Partnership Leadership Table.

“I find the collegiality and professionalism of working with colleagues across organisations and sectors so beneficial and supportive,” said Ms Evans.

“Collective impact can be very powerful.

“I am so honoured to be joining the ECA National Board, and look forward to working with the board and our members to improve outcomes for Australian children.”

ECA National President Trevor Brown said: “Early Childhood Australia is very pleased to welcome Alison Evans to the National Board.”

“Ali’s wealth of experience, leadership capability and deep insight into the early years is highly valued and will be influential in guiding ECA’s work into the future.”

Since her appointment to G8 Education’s executive team last year, Ms Evans has been committed to continuously building on its sector-leading education strategy. 

“G8 Education is incredibly privileged to have someone of Ali’s calibre, experience and expertise within our leadership team,” said G8 Education CEO Pejman Okhovat.

“On behalf of G8 Education I want to congratulate Ali on her appointment to the ECA National Board.

“I know you will continue to advocate for the children, families and teams in our centres, and in all early learning settings across Australia in your new role.”
