12-week reprieve for Manawatu kindy

Associate Education Minister, David Seymour has today confirmed Country Kindy in Manawatu will remain open, after being granted a 12-week stay from the Ministry of Education.

“When I heard of the decision made last week to shut down Country Kindy I was immediately concerned and asked officials to explain,” say Mr Seymour.

The Government is currently undergoing a sector review for the Early Childhood Education sector, to address major issues with affordability and availability of early childhood education, and the complexity of its regulation.

“If we can make it easier for educators to focus on children’s safety and learning, and less on the paperwork, then it will be the children who benefit most,” said the Minister.
