Quality in parent / whānau-led services, and the factors that support it: Technical Report

The main purpose of this research was to find out more about the contributions parent and whanau-led early childhood education (ECE) services are making to children's learning, parent knowledge/skills and social support, and community, in order to provide the Ministry of Education and parent/whānau-led services with information that could be used to support quality in these services.  For the purposes of this research parent/whānau led services were playcentres, kōhanga reo, Pasifika early childhood centres and groups, general playgroups, community language playgroups and puna.
