Infants playing at an early childhood education centreKia ora rawa atu – Many thanks for coming to My ECE 

My ECE provides parents and the public with straightforward information on early childhood education (ECE). 

My ECE was born following the recommendations of the NZ Government ECE Taskforce in 2011 for details on service quality and standards to be brought together in a format that is easy for parents to access.

Parents and caregivers can look up a service, learn about its compliance history, and compare it to other services. Externally submitted reviews are also provided here to allow parents and caregivers to form their own opinions when choosing an early childhood service. 

Published for parents are articles and checklists on a range of childcare topics. Find out how to make a complaint against a service.  Read the Code of Children's Rights. See a plain-English guide to the early childhood regulations.
