Election 2017 - You Can Make a Difference




Election 2017 is shaping up to be a close race, and the outcome will have an effect on early childhood education. It could make the difference between whether our kindergartens can survive as quality accessible affordable services, or not. It really does matter.


We are emailing an election kit to teams tomorrow and will be posting hard copies early next week.  


You would have noticed this week that each kindergarten received electoral resources on how to enrol and vote etc. If everyone could please present this info somewhere in their kindergartens that would be great! We are encouraging parents and whānau to enrol and make an informed decision this election!


Starting next week we'll have election campaign updates in the Kōrero and on our website.  It is really important that people get involved - you have a critical role to play.  


Look out for the election kit in your emails tomorrow afternoon!



Whānau Manaaki Kindergartens - key issues for the election

  • Children in high quality ECE are learning for life and are connected to their communities
  • Make eradication of child poverty a priority
  • Restore the requirement for all teacher-led services to have 100 per cent qualified teachers
  • Meet the cost of a 100 per cent qualified workforce
  • Invest on a comprehensive, high quality, learning support service – particularly in the early years
  • Provide annual funding increases (based on the Consumer Price Index, CPI)
