Has your child's early childhood service been found to be breaching minimum licensing requirements for child safety, staffing, or in other areas such as management and curriculum?
The names of early childhood services are published annually. Look up here.
In NZ, services are not fined for breaching the regulations and licensing standards.
When the Ministry of Education finds that a service is not up to standard on one or more regulatory requirements, it may choose to put it on official notice to improve by downgrading its licence from a full to a provisional licence. It also has the options of suspending its licence or cancelling and forcing the service to close.
Our system places responsibility on parents and the public to report services and to complain. Read more about how to make a complaint.
