Inquiry into the Use and Quality of ECE for Children Under Two Years


In February 2011 the Children's Commissioner launched a report of their inquiry into the non-parental education and care of infants and toddlers to employer representatives in the early childhood sector, child advocates, and other stakeholders.  The report was to be released to the media at the same time, but due to the major earthquake in Christchurch that had just happened a decision was made by the Commission to delay releasing the report publicly to the media. 

The report has now been publicly made available and is published on the Children's Commission website.  

You can read some general information on infant ECE in NZ provided by ChildFoum by clicking here to go to a news article.

Here is what the Children's Commission recommends:

"As a signatory to UNCROC, NZ has a legal obligation to consider the best interests of children in its policies.  If this is to be done well, some changes need to be made to the current set of policies, regulations, and practices around support for parents and non-parental care of infants and toddlers".

 

Below for ChildForum members only we provide an overview of the Commission's recommendations from the launch of the report and more recorded video.
