Did you know that whereas it was okay to do a regular check (and it was up to the service how often this occurred) now the Ministry of Education requires that equipment, premises and facilities are checked for hazards on "on every day"?
This is one of the changes to the legal requirements for home-based and hospital-based ECE services that the Ministry of Education has made.
Save time comparing your copy of the Licensing Criteria to the one that the Ministry now has online and trying to discern what the changes are. Instead of printing off an entire new copy make use of the information sheet we have provided for you below to quickly see what the new criteria are and what criteria have changed.
