ECE Services That Did Not Meet Minimum Standards in 2020

Search Entire Website
regulation breaches compliance requirements standard

Shown below are the early childhood services operating at any time during the 2020 year on a downgraded licence or whose licence was cancelled when not meeting minimum standards.

The numbers:
218 – Services on a provisional licence
43 – Services that received a suspension notice 
32 – Services had their licences cancelled (voluntarily or forced) in relation to non-compliance

238 ECE services had one or more licensing action against them, this total comprises: 
0 –  ECE licensed hospital-based services 
9 – Kōhanga Reo
22 – Playcentres
38 – Home-based services
9 – Kindergarten Assn run centres
160 – Other education and care centres

Of the 160 non-kindergarten association education and care centres, 111 were privately owned and just 49 were community-run. Why do centres that are privately owned dominate the figures?  A simple explanation is that there are many private centres and groups in the ECE market so of course more services that received licensing actions against them were private.  But if private is to be equated with higher standards then this number needs to fall. 

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.

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.
