Early Childhood Education Policies: Answers to Common Questions.
New Zealand Qualifications Authority, Wellington.
This publication addresses frequently asked questions regarding several of New Zealand's early childhood education policies. Using a question-answer format, an explanation is provided for the licensing requirements of the Ministry of Education for early childhood staff and the criteria for "quality funding." New Zealand Qualifications Authority early childhood education credentials are described: (1) The Early Childhood Point System; (2) Grandparenting of Points for Alternative Qualifications; (3) Equivalence to a Diploma of Teaching (ECE); (4) Licensing Points; and (5) The Development of Future Options for People with Licensing Points. The National Qualifications Framework currently facilitates the development of national standards for qualifications in many industries, including early childhood. A general timeline for the development and implementation of the new early childhood qualification concludes the publication. (KDFB)
