This annual report outlines the mission, values, and goals of New Zealand's Early Childhood Development board (ECD), established in 1989 to promote the development and provision of high quality, accessible, and culturally appropriate educational and developmental facilities/services for families and young children. The report contains a directory of ECD addresses; a brief description of ECD; statements of the office's purpose, mission, and values; and reports by ECD's chairperson, chief executive, and the audit office. Priorities for the year are delineated for ECD legislation, stakeholders and partnerships, service delivery, human resources, information strategies, and ECD governance. A statement of service performance details the performance measures covering the ECD's key activities. Specific information is presented in three output areas: (1) advice to the Minister of Education and the Ministry; (2) a range of early childhood education and parenting support services; and (3) management of grants and contracts. A statement of service costs, accounting policies, and financial information complete the report. (KB)
