Absolutely loving EC Supplies. The guaranteed next day delivery is efficient and makes my job easy knowing we won't be waiting. The ordering is effortless, having always found everything I need and competitive pricing.

EC supplies has allowed me to access a large variety of products in an immediate time frame. Also, as we are a smaller centre the cost savings have also had a significant impact and allowed us to keep fees lower for families.
- Vanessa Woods, Director, First Friends Preschool Dural
We started using EC Supplies for the discounted pricing but soon realised this was only one of the benefits. The ease of ordering, next day delivery and being able to buy so much of what we need in the one place, just means we can get back to doing what's important, interactions with the children.

Wondering how EC Supplies Account Managers understand the demands of a childcare centre... Before taking on any clients they are required to spend a week working alongside staff inside a centre. Once approved they are then required to do a refresher for two days every year after that. This simple but powerful exercise gives them a unique perspective of the challenges faced when they are on the other end of the phone.
One of the key membership benefits of the EC Supplies buying group is being assigned your own dedicated account manager. No longer will you have to call a generic customer service number or send off a support ticket, instead you will be given a direct mobile phone number and work email address to communicate with.
Not only will you receive personalised service, your account manager will also assist with day to day ordering and product enquiries, work with you to save costs through quarterly reviews and audits of your centre's product usage, coordinate training for your staff with the representatives of our preferred suppliers (eg. cleaning products) and keep you up to date with new services coming into the EC Supplies group.
