Early learning regulatory advisory group

The Ministry has an established advisory group that contributes perspectives and advice on regulatory policy work.

About the early learning regulatory advisory group

As part of the Ministry’s Early Learning Regulatory Review, which started in 2020, we established an advisory group to contribute their perspectives and advice.

The group has continued to advise on and inform the Ministry’s ECE regulatory policy work throughout the review, and our current work programme.

The group includes representatives from early childhood education services and peak sector bodies.
