Pademelon Press publishes and distributes quality Australian early childhood teacher resource books. We support the professional development of educators in their work with children.

Pademelon Press was created in 1990 by Rodney and Carmel Kenner. Pademelon Press is located in New South Wales, Australia. The current owner is Alison Moodie. Alison’s aim is to publish quality books that make a difference in the lives of children and their educators and carers.

Alison is an Accredited Editor with the Institute of Professional Editors, and has worked in book publishing for over 35 years. Alison has an interest in amplifying the voices of First Nations writers so we can all learn from their wisdom and worldview.

The aim of Pademelon Press is to build up a library of essential, quality  resources covering all areas of early childhood education and care.

With over thirty titles already in print and several more due under production, we are well on our way to achieving this aim. As well as publishing original Australian books we actively seek out the best and most appropriate resources from around the world, especially from the United States and the United Kingdom.
