Little girl

This is a chance for parents, whānau, educators, providers of early learning services, and the wider community to have a say on the future of New Zealand education for children from 0-5 years old. 

Online survey

What do you think about He taonga te tamaiti, the draft strategic plan for early learning?

The draft plan contains a series of recommendations, grouped under five main goals.

Take the online survey to give us your feedback on the recommendations. 

We’d also like to hear what’s most important to you, and whether you think anything is missing.

The survey takes around 15-20 minutes.

Make a detailed submission

If you prefer, you can email a submission to early.learning@education.govt.nz

Regional hui

We will be holding hui in many different locations around New Zealand.  The hui are primarily aimed at early learning providers, educators and parents, but anyone is welcome to attend.  There will be a presentation about the draft plan, and opportunities for questions and discussion.

Two sessions are available in most locations, usually starting mid-afternoon and early evening.  It is free to attend.

If you are interested in attending one of the hui, select from the list below or visit our events section and register now.
