Public Kindergarten

Public kindergarten has been an important part of the provision of ECE in NZ. The NZ Government was duel-partner and owner of free kindergartens with Kindergarten Associations. This ensured public provision of high-quality pre-school education.
But today, Free Kindergartens can operate as long-day, fee-charging childcare services and enrol toddlers and infants.  Kindergartens are no longer treated as part of our public education system and are no longer free.
How can we work to preserve what was best for another generation of kiwi kids to enjoy?  Learn more here.
