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.
