Early Childhood Services Failing to Meet Minimum Standards in 2024

story views food

Below are the names of ECE services known to be on a downgraded licence in 2024 or whose licence has been withdrawn in 2024 due to not meeting minimum regulatory standards. The list will be added to and updated during the year. It is a draft list and incomplete. Please let us know if your service has had a licence change due to non-compliance.

ECE services are required to be licensed to care for children and to receive public funding. Services are licenced under the Education (Early Childhood Services) Regulations 2008 and must meet these regulations to hold a full licence. Should a service breach regulation the Ministry of Education can ask a service to make improvements and/or it can use any of its compliance tools:

  1. Issue a written direction giving a service up to 10 working days to fix immediate health and safety risks. Services are not required to tell parents or display the written direction, and children can continue to attend.
  2. Downgrade the full licence to a provisional licence. This allows the service to continue operating while working toward compliance. Services are required to display their licence, but not required to make sure that all parents know about the licence reclassification and failure to meet minimum standards.
  3. Suspend the licence. Children cannot attend when the licence is suspended. If a suspended service does not meet the conditions of the suspension notice, the Ministry may cancel its licence to operate.
  4. Cancel the licence. The last resort is withdrawing the licence and permanently closing the service.

The Ministry of Education does not make the decision to take licensing action against a service lightly. Regulation breaches must be major or serious, are usually multiple, and not able to be resolved quickly or before a change of licence is issued following visits to the service and communications with the service provider and or manager.

The Ministry of Education takes a cautious approach in taking any licensing action. Every licensing decision is peer-reviewed before any licensing action is taken against a service. If a service provider, particularly one with a large investment in their business, threatens the Ministry with legal action over a potential or actual downgrade in licence – the costs of such legal action may be considered by the Ministry and may outweigh downgrading or suspending the licence.
