Our position is that a maximum group size (also known as class size) must be regulated for in all early childhood centres.
Furthermore, new regulation for maximum group size needs to include the concept of the children's 'bubble'. Note that when we have been Alert Level 3 for Covid-19 in NZ, services implemented bubble sizes of no more than 20 children, in the same physical space, with no mixing of children and adults between bubbles. It was done. Setting a limit on group sizes can work. It is wise to do this to help to protect children's and adults' physical health and it is optimal for children's learning and social-psychological development.
