Future direction of early learning

A new survey launched today will contribute to developing the government’s 10-year Strategic Plan for Early Learning, says Nancy Bell, Director of Early Learning at the Ministry of Education.

The survey is aimed at parents, families and whānau, teachers, early learning providers and the wider community.

"We want to hear from a wide range of people about what they think is working well already, and what could be changed to improve early learning for all New Zealand children, from birth to 5 years old," Nancy Bell says.

"People’s ideas and feedback will then be shared with the groups who are working on the strategy."

A Ministerial Advisory Group and a Reference Group will develop the strategy, with support from the Ministry of Education.

This work will also be informed by the Education Summit events and the broader Education Conversation.

The survey has been published on the Education Conversation hub here, and closes on 12 July 2018.
