What do you think about the main changes that are being suggested for home-based early childhood education? If you just want to focus on the main changes, take our quick survey now.  It should take around 10 minutes.

The survey closed on 30 September.

This is your opportunity to tell us what you think about all of the changes that are being suggested. This survey will take a bit longer. We suggest allowing 15 minutes or more.

Regional hui

We will be holding hui in six regions: Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington Christchurch and Dunedin. These hui are primarily aimed at home-based ECE service providers but anyone is welcome to attend. There will be a presentation about the proposals, and opportunities for questions and discussion.

All hui are being held from 1pm to 2.30pm. Children are welcome and it is free to attend.

Targeted meetings for educators and parents

Are you a home-based educator, nanny or au pair? We are proposing changes to home-based ECE that include potentially introducing qualification requirements, and changes to educator working conditions. We’d like to hear what you think about these changes.

We will be holding targeted evening meetings for educators and parents in Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. All meetings will be in the evening from 7pm-8.30pm.

If you are an educator or a parent, we would love to see you at one of the meetings. Children are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
