When National released its ECE policy back in July, it signalled that the then-government's new ECE regulations, due to come into force on Monday would be revisted. Anne Tolley has been Minister of Education for just a week, but she has delivered on that promise, and the regulations are on hold for six months pending further review and further consultation with the ECE sector.
Thank you Minister! Your prompt delivery on this promise bodes well for the sector. Our service now looks forward to work starting on changes to 20 Hours ECE.
