logo for My ECEUsually when an early childhood service is put on notice for breaching regulations by the Ministry of Education it works quickly to be fully legal again. The ministry often places professional support into the service and funds the cost of it for the service provider (through the SELO fund - Strengthening Early Learning Opportunities Fund)

Out of the services that had licences reclassified to provisional in 2017, 24 were 'repeat offenders' in 2018. 

This is important information for parents using these services, so they know the recent history and can ask questions to protect the well-being of their child.

What is a provisional licence?

What does it mean if a licence is suspended or withdrawn/cancelled? 

The services shown below were placed on a provisional licence in 2017 and again in 2018 or the Ministry decided to suspend the licence so the service could not care for children again until breaches were fixed.
