About the Victorian Early Years Awards

The Victorian Early Years Awards celebrate the exceptional contributions that individuals and organisations make to improve the learning and development of young children and their families.

Now in its 15th year, the Victorian Early Years Awards (VEYA) has celebrated leadership, outstanding achievement, exceptional dedication and innovation in improving outcomes for children and their families.

This year the awards not only celebrate nominees, finalists and winners, but the commitment, resilience and flexibility demonstrated by the entire sector throughout the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

There are seven award categories that focus on improving engagement in learning, supporting parents, building collaborative community partnerships, improving health and wellbeing, exemplary practice in early childhood education, leadership and significant service improvement.

Winners of each category will receive a grant of up to $15,000 for professional development or to support their nominated early childhood initiative. The finalists and winners in each category are also eligible to win the prestigious Minister’s Award, selected by the Minister for Early Childhood.
