The article offers a Ministry of Education commentary on the policy framework for early childhood education (ECE) in New Zealand. It addresses concerns about the policy framework for ECE which is said to place an emphasis on staff qualifications and the disadvantages of services with high levels of parental involvement. The author notes that the funding and regulatory policies aim to balance a range of ECE-related goals and other government goals, while facilitating diversity in the ECE sector to allow them to continue to meet the diverse needs of parents and the children.
