Services that Breached Minimum Requirements in 2021

regulation breaches compliance requirements standard

Shown below are the early childhood services who broke the rules and had licence breaches in 2021.

In 2021 the Ministry of Education issued a total of:
– 205 provisional licences to ECE services for failure to comply with minimum standards
– 37 licence suspensions
– 20 licence cancellations following failure to meet licensing conditions

The Ministry of Education has discretion over issuing licence changes to services for licensing breaches, even when a service breaches minimum requirements in areas such as child safety and staffing. It doesn’t make the decision lightly. Usually the breaches are serious, or cannot be easily or quickly put right.

Licensing information and breaches is public information. Every ECE service must prominently display its licence and any conditions placed on it for parents/ caregivers and visitors to read and check.

Most services will welcome conversations about what they were not doing right and how they are working to improve. Transparency and openness is key to parent and community trust and support.

Any errors? – Email us a copy of your service licence documents (we are happy to make corrections). Contact your local MoE office and check their licensing records for your service.
