We're proud to support the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco!

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is proud to join forces with Little Rockers Radio and Red Nose Day, to support the 2019 Little Rockers Red Nose Disco.

In its fifth year, the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco, presented by iHeartRadio is aiming to break all records with over 50,000 children expected to dance around the country to help save little lives.

With nine children still dying suddenly and unexpectedly every day in Australia, funds raised through Red Nose Day fundraising activities, including the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco, go to Red Nose’s advocacy and research programs into the causes of all sudden, unexplained and preventable childhood deaths, educating the community on safe sleeping practices, and supporting families who have been devastated by the sudden and unexpected death of a child.

Sarah Morrissey, Little Rockers Radio founder has expressed her gratitude for our support.


“We are delighted to have the support of the Australian Childcare Alliance, who have over 2,500 member centres nationally and are encouraging all centres to host their own disco on Red Nose Day. This year we aim to have well over 50,000 children dancing in what will be Australia’s largest kids disco and our fundraising target is set on $100,000,” said Sarah.

The disco campaign was an idea born out of loss, with Sarah’s nephew passing from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in 2008 at 16-months old. The Little Rockers Red Nose Disco, presented again by iHeartRadio, is a great way for littlies to dance and have fun and to help raise awareness for a serious cause, saving little lives.

ACA President Paul Mondo is excited to be supporting the Little Rockers Red Nose Disco. “It’s an innovative and fun approach to raising funds for a serious issue. We encourage all our member centres to take part. After all, who doesn’t love to dance with children?!” ACA President Paul Mondo said.

ACA in conjunction with Little Rockers Radio and the Red Nose Day team, will announce the total funds raised through this initiative at ACA Victoria’s annual conference on 17 August.”

For early learning service providers, there’s plenty of time to get involved!

ACA members can simply register to host their own mini disco on Red Nose Day, Friday 9th August 2019 (or any day in the week, 5th - 9th August) at www.everydayhero.com.au/event/aca.

By encouraging all participating children to make a gold coin donation, valuable funds will be raised for Red Nose’s advocacy and research programs. 

We thank you in advance for your support!
