Choices of ECE services

click here to view the parent's guide to childcareThere are many different choices of publicly funded and government licensed early childhood education and childcare services in NZ. 

Additionally, there are also some personal options for care that may suit a child and family better.

So, if you want to know more about the different types of licensed services available and alternative personal options then see the articles in this category.

Because quality is important, we can't tell you about the options without also giving you information and guidance around what to look for and how to decide whether to use a service or not.
