PORSE Looks at Opportunity to Change Paradigms in NZ and AUS

Media Release

PORSE POTENTIAL TO CHANGE EDUCATION PARADIGMS

New Zealand’s leading in-home childcare and training provider, PORSE is exploring an opportunity, which will positively change early childhood education paradigms in NZ and Australia.

The organisation has engaged in early discussions with Evolve Education, which is planning to list on the NZ Stock Exchange, joining with centre-based ECE providers as well as PORSE in-home childcare.

PORSE managing director, Jenny Yule says this is an opportunity to continue to innovate, grow and lift paradigms in the field of early childhood education that encourages partnership, collaboration and innovation across all service types.

“The PORSE philosophy, culture and values that have grown over the past 20 years will continue to be nurtured and protected. Nothing would change and the integrity of the PORSE model will remain constant. Our intent to grow healthy babies and children would stay the same and with better collaboration and support from Evolve Education we could take our vision to new heights.

“It is not the source from which the funds are derived, but the purpose to which they are to be applied, that makes a difference.”

The Evolve Education opportunity could provide PORSE with the resources on an international platform to add power to its vision.

“This is also a chance for New Zealand mums and dads to be invested in a movement in early childhood education that impacts positive social change,” said Ms Yule.

“By collaborating and working together we would provide education and training and support the sector and parents to become more informed of their options when choosing care for their children during their most formative years.

“We want to champion thought leadership in our sector and offer centre-based providers education and training to support us in getting our message out there.

“Living and learning begins at home. We are still affirming the need for families to raise their babies in connected attachment relationships. More parents are choosing in-home childcare because their children form special relationships with one person in a settled home environment where natural play and learning occurs.

“PORSE would have the support of other providers in the Evolve Education Group to share our message and work collaboratively to inform parents about the importance of relationships in the early years.”

Ms Yule says discussions are still in the very early stages and a decision is expected at the end of September.
