Early Childhood Education Support

We tautoko Māori and Pasifika whānau with tamariki aged three to five and a half years old to enrol into an appropriate early childhood education centre and maintain attendance.

Early childhood education builds the interest and abilities of your Tamaiti, provides a chance for you and your Tamaiti to meet new people, make friends, get along with others, and in involved in your community, and helps your child gain skills to be ready for kura.

By combining the strengths of the education and social work sectors, this programme works alongside whānau to plan, visit centres, help with culturally appropriate choices, to maintain regular attendance and to assist whānau in understanding the benefits of early education.

Referrals for this service can be discussed by calling 0800 66 99 57.
