Early learning sector organisations

The Ministry of Education is the Government’s lead advisor on the education system. In the early childhood education sector, we have responsibility for strategic leadership and policy development, and we also have a substantial operational role. We work with a range of education agencies and sector organisations to fulfil these roles.

We work with education agencies to develop strategic policy and deliver services and support to the sector. We work with sector organisations to ensure that early childhood education (ECE) services and kōhanga reo have the resources and support they need to meet legislative and regulatory requirements and meet children’s early learning needs. 

A number of ECE sector organisations are members of the Early Childhood Advisory Committee (ECAC). We work closely with ECAC to achieve common goals.
