Early Childhood Council


The Early Childhood Council is New Zealand’s largest incorporated society in the Early Childhood Education sector. We represent the interests of independent early learning services and promote the provision of quality early childhood education. 

Just like the sector, our membership is diverse and comprises of community owned centres, privately owned centres and voluntary groups from a range of locations across the country. Our focus is on supporting centres to be successful by representing their best interests and providing advocacy when required. We understand the value of early learning and encourage centres to surpass the minimum requirements set by the Ministry of Education.
