The Ministry of Education have notified of changes to the licensing criteria for licensed early childhood services.
The changes were notified in the Government's "New Zealand Gazette" on 25 February 2016 and compliance was made effective the next day.
It was extraordinary short notice of the details, though the Ministry had earlier signalled that changes were coming in.
