Regulations 2008 cover

Early childhood services that breached minimum standards in 2019

The purpose of providing the information below is to support parents in making a more informed choice of early childhood education service for their baby or young child. Most service providers will inform parents of a change of licence. But if they have not or did not then the list below can give parents this information.

Most service providers embrace transparency and welcome the opportunity to explain to their parents and families what the service was found to be doing wrong, and what they are doing or have done to make improvements. 

The Ministry of Education says that when it makes a decision to downgrade a service's licence, it does not make the decision lightly.  It takes lots of factors into consideration:

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)

Do you know an early childhood service that was not up to scratch but it is not shown below in the list?  If if is not shown here then the Ministry of Education is likely to only know about this if you tell it.
