WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A CHILDCARE PROVIDER

Q.   Why is an early childhood education important for child development?

Ministry of Education;
Research shows that children who are involved in quality early childhood education (ECE) benefit in many ways, and that these benefits also extend to their family/whānau and the wider community.

Taking part in ECE builds a strong foundation for your child’s ongoing education, learning and development. Children learn lots of new skills by participating in ECE, building on the skills they learn at home and from their families/whānau.
 
Q.   When should a child start attending day care?

Most of the day cares provide facilities that carter to child age 3 months till they are school going. Thus, when a child should attend early childhood education, largely depends on your personal circumstances and choices.

Q.   Does the Centre philosophy match with my values?

Every child care has a Centre philosophy which highlights it’s core values and further helps design the centre’s learning and teaching programmes. Before deciding on any early childhood education facility, every parent should ask for and check whether the child care provider’s philosophy delivers and matches with their expectations and values.
 
 
Q.     Centre Environment and should you visit a child care before enrolling?

Before enrolling, a parent has the right and should visit the centre to check the childcare environment for its safety, health/hygiene standards, compliance with ministry regulations. Ask for the details of facilities provided, fees structures, kitchen/meal facilities and staff qualifications. Also in your visit, include time to meet up with the teachers and know of their teaching practices.

Q.     Ero Report:

Ministry of Education regularly conducts a thorough investigation of every childcare and in a written statement gives its findings/recommendations to each service provider.  Such report is displayed on the child care’s notice board and is also available through a link on the MOE website. Before deciding, go through the ERO report of a centre, as it contains valuable information about the child care.

Q.     When you should enquire and enrol your child?

Sometimes, the child care that you select may not have spaces available for your child age, or such spaces can fill up very quickly, thus it is a good practice to plan ahead and book a child care as early as 2 months in advance.
