2011 ECE Statistics on Children, Staffing, Services, Quality, Spending & Cost


© ChildForum

Here is an overview of the most significant changes in children’s participation, staffing, and service provision across and between the different types of early childhood services in New Zealand.

Also a profile of what is known about standards in services, such as qualification levels of staff, is presented on this page along with the latest 2011 statistical data on the cost for families and the benefits of ECE.

There have been some very interesting changes over recent years and these are identified and discussed below.  

This is essential information for people planning to open or extend an early childhood service to know about. The information will be useful too for researchers seeking ideas for research topics and tertiary education planners, family support agencies, and social policy analysts.
