100% qualified teachers trained in Early Education & Care

Our position on requiring teaching staff to be ECE trained and qualified

We believe in teacher-led centres that all adults counted in the minimum legal adult-child ratio should have a high level of training in early childcare and education, as recognised through the award of a teaching qualification approved by the Teaching Council for the purpose of a practising certificate.   

Note that staff employed in excess of the legal ratio requirement do not need to have ECE training, and may bring the 'nana factor' of an experienced caregiver who is not trained, or other valuable skills, or be in-training ECE teachers.
