Te Rito NZ supports proposed changes to home Child education

Published: Wed 22 Aug 2018 04:00 PM
Te Rito Maioha is pleased by the Ministry of Education’s proposed changes to home-based early childhood education.
‘The proposals are all about raising the overall quality of early childhood education and improving our young tamariki’s experience in their first 1000 days,’ says Te Rito Maioha Chief Executive, Kathy Wolfe.
‘It is great to see the government wanting home-based educators have at least a Level 4 qualification.
‘We support the proposal that visiting teachers visit home-based services more often because we believe the current one physical visit a month is not enough. We also like the proposal for a health and safety check to be a mandatory part of that visit.
‘In addition, we are pleased to see the proposal to clarify police check requirements under the Education Act 1989.’
Ms Wolfe says Te Rito Maioha also welcomes the discussion around home-based educators needing more professional development to support their continued learning.
More information about the proposed changes is available on the Education Conversation website.
Consultation is open until 24 September 2018.
