Regulations 2008 coverOn this page MyECE.org.nz provides the names of early childhood services that in 2017:

  • were put on notice by the Ministry of Education for failure to meet one or more minimum standards (licence was reclassified by the Ministry as provisional until compliance reached),
  • were closed by the Ministry of Education because of non-compliance, or
  • had an Education Review Office confirmed report in 2017 noting an area or areas of non-compliance.

Why publish the names of services known to have licence breaches in 2017

The main purpose of the information presented below is to support you as a parent in making an informed choice when choosing care and education for your child or an early childhood service that your family and whanau can be involved in.

Should your early childhood service be shown as having breached minimum standards requirements, it is better for you to know this than not to know. 

Transparency and accountability are cornerstones of providing quality early childhood education and care for children and families.

Ask your service what it failed on and why - are you concerned about this as a parent or family member?  If it was something that you find concerning, ask what improvements have been made and what has been put in place to make sure that standards do not slip again or that a similar problem does not reoccur.

Some other ways that this information might help

  • Gossip within communities can be more harmful to a service's reputation than being open about what's happened. When a service is open about its compliance history, is accountable to its families and community and can show what changes or improvements have been made, trust and confidence in it builds.  
  • Teachers applying for jobs and people putting themselves forward as volunteers and board members may find the information helpful in making an informed decision and to know to check on any remediation and changes that have been made before becoming involved. 
  • Mum and dad investors in early childhood education businesses may not otherwise be aware of or know to ask about a service's compliance history and issues, and then be hit with unexpected costs to bring a service up-to-scratch. 

The roles of the Ministry of Education and Education Review Office and background information

A provisional licence is issued when an early learning service (sic 'early childhood service') isn't meeting the Ministry's licensing standards. Severity of the breaches is taken into consideration. This includes if there are immediate risks to the health and safety of children and the total number of regulatory breaches. (Ministry of Education quote 14/6/2018)

The Ministry of Education is responsible for licensing early childhood services and ensuring every service meets minimum standards in practice as prescribed by law. It is the regulator.  

The Education Review Office is a government agency that functions to provide written reports on how well placed early childhood services and schools are to contribute to children's learning and promote children's well-being. Reviewers normally visit an early childhood service every 3 to 4 years (unless it received a poor report and then the next visit might be in 1 or 2 years time) and reviews focus on the service provider's documentation and systems.

The Education Review Office is not legally required to inform the Ministry of any known or alleged breaches it discovers.

As explained previously, the Ministry does not follow nor have a schedule for inspections. Regular unannounced spot checks of early childhood services are not undertaken. (read more).

Ministry Deputy Secretary Katrina Casey said that it was because of 41 complaints made to it against services that it was alerted to licence breaches at 31 services leading to licence reclassification to provisional in 2017.

From June 2016 the Ministry began regular monthly checking of confirmed ERO reports to compile a list of services where ERO had come across licence breaches. It also gets the heads-up about possible compliance issues when there is a news report in the media of a serious incident or the service itself reports an incident. 

To sum up, the Ministry takes a reactive approach. It places full trust in service providers to meet all requirements all of the time and assumes that service providers know and have a correct understanding of the regulations and rules they are expected to meet. 

It should be noted that the services shown below as having had regulation breaches in 2017 are only those that are known and there could be others that the Ministry and ERO have not identified.   

Numbers

The number of early childhood services that had their licence reclassified as 'provisional' was more than double the number in 2017 than it was in 2016. 

In 2016 the number of services that had licences downgraded to provisional due to non-compliance was 75.  During 2017 a total of 154 services services were placed on a provisional licence. 

Some services had their full licence restored in 2017 only to be found to be again breaching regulations resulting in being put back onto a provisional licence (see table below).  

Five services had their full licence reclassified as provisional in 2017, the second year in a row that they had been found breaching regulations  (click here to see the 2016 table of services that were known to have breached standards): Little Pipis Childcare (licence number 45732), Little Learners Education and Care (licence number: 40288), Choicekids Alfriston Rd centre (licence number 45923), Kidz Paradise Homebased (licence number 45323), and Discoveries Educare at Gillies where a tree fell injuring several children in 2016 (licence number 46322),

"Ministry withdrawal of licence due to non-compliance" was the reason given by the Ministry for the closures of six services only in 2017: Our Place Early Learning Centre, Rawene Playcentre, Steiner Childcare Petone, Goodstory Pasifika Homebased Services, North Shore Nannies, and Ketesemane A'oga Amata EFKS Inc. But oddly in its 2017 ECE Complaints report the Ministry says that it"cancelled the licences of nine services in relation to 11 complaints." Either this is a simple typing error or it closed at least three services on the basis of complaints only - without identifying non-compliance. 

A total of 16 licences under the names of Lighthouse @ Home and Oak Tree Home Care were also cancelled in 2017 (Oak Tree Home Care had the licenses of an additional 4 services cancelled in 2016). The Ministry cannot provide the reason or reasons for licence cancellations as legal matters may not be resolved with the service providers. 

Do you know of an early childhood service that should be listed here but isn't?

Inform the Ministry of Education if you know of an early childhood service that was not meeting basic standards in 2017 (if not named below) by submitting a complaint (learn more here)

You can view the minimum education requirements for early childhood centres here - the requirements for home-based, hospital-based, and kohanga reo services are similar to the general requirements for early childhood centres but there is some variation reflecting differences in premises and purpose.
