Childcare travel grants

Applications currently closed.

The ESA is offering a number of Conference Childcare Travel Grants to assist delegates with young children to bring a support carer with them to help with care over the conference period.

We hope this will allow delegates with young children more freedom to participate in the conference program and activities, and provide the opportunity to have a trusted carer of your choice looking after your family.

Funding of $250 is available as a contribution to the travel costs of your chosen carer e.g. partner, grand-parent, family member or friend.

To be eligible you must:

  • Be a current financial ESA member.
  • Be attending the ESA Conference as a registered delegate.
  • Have childcare needs for children 12 or under.
  • Only one grant is available per family and funding is limited so be quick!


Any questions just contact Gail Spina

Discount for families where both parents are presenting and sharing childcare

ESA is also offering a registration discount for families with young children where both parents are presenting and sharing childcare responsibility in recognition that this limits each parent’s participation in the full conference program. If you would like more information about this option please contact
