NZEI launches new campaign to restore funding and quality to ECE
4 November 2016
NZEI Te Riu Roa is launching a new campaign calling for the restoration of funding and quality to Early Childhood Education (ECE).
"Every child is worth the best early childhood education and a great start in life," said NZEI president Louise Green.
"Participation in ECE alone is not good enough without quality. Our members have long called for the Government to focus on the quality of ECE available for children, before it drives more children to participate.
"New Zealand can afford to provide the best early childhood education in the world. And we think every child is worth it," Ms Green said.
