You can now shop online anytime now with ECRM Newcastle. In order to keep our community covid safe we have cancelled our scheduled August market day!

Welcome to the Early Childhood Resources Market based in Newcastle. ECRM is a collaboration of Australian small businesses providing educational, sensory and holistic products and services suitable for young children.

Well our first hands on market in what seem's like an eternity was a wonderful event on the 6th March, 2021. There really is nothing quite like that hands on experience and chatting with our amazing customers and catching up with each other as vendors. ECRM will be back in 2022 with our next market day on Saturday, 26th March at Club Macquarie in Newcastle. Stay warm and well everyone.

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions many of our vendors are currently unable to offer local delivery and/or click and collect. Many delivery services Australia wide are also experiencing delays. We thank you for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.

Thank you for your continued support of our wonderful Vendors, shopping small with the Early Childhood Resources Market really does makes a difference to our Vendors.

Stay home and stay well.

About Us

Maureen Hayes

ECRM Market Manager and Owner, Creator and Designer at Natural Play for Children

ECRM Newcastle first began after Natural Play for Children opened up our very first small winter market to our local community in 2015 after hosting an early childhood professional development event. 

This is how the Early Childhood Resources Market came to be, created from one small business owners dream to create a free boutique market for our local community and to network with and showcase fellow Australian small businesses.  

Together We Can Do Anything!
