Group size

Our position is that regulation to set maximum group sizes is needed in centres. This would ensure children are cared for in small groups only, and groups have their own teacher/s. (Note that at Alert Level 3 for Covid-19 in NZ, services implemented bubble sizes of 20 or less children, in the same physical space, with no mixing of children and adults between bubbles. This shows it can be done. Small group size has recognised health benefits - as well as educational)
