Our current priorities and how we work
Early learning strategic plan
A new strategic plan is being developed for early learning that will set the high level direction and vision for the next ten years.
The Strategic Plan for Early Learning will set out a systematic and stepped approach to developing and strengthening the early learning sector, to meet the needs of all children and their families and whānau.
Review of home-based early learning
A review of home-based early childhood education is also underway, to ensure that it delivers quality education and care for children.
A website for parents
We have developed a website for parents, families, whānau (external link) and caregivers to provide them with answers to their education questions. They can also get information and tips to help them be involved in their children’s learning. The site features a section on early learning.
Other areas the Ministry focuses on:
- Early Learning Information (ELI)
- ECE statistics
- Early Learning Bulletin
- Early Childhood Advisory Committee (ECAC)
- Information on other legislation for ECE services and kōhanga reo
