Great response for the 2018 annual ECE return

We would like to thank the early learning services that have submitted their ECE returns for the week of 18 to 24 June 2018.

If you have not yet submitted your ECE return or RS61, please ensure that you submit it immediately. Your funding will be withheld if your submission is not received.

For early learning services that have submitted their 2018 ECE returns, please ensure that all children who:

1. Were enrolled during the return week have their attendance (or absence) recorded.

2. Attended during the return week have their enrolments covering the correct periods.

The Ministry will contact early learning services to address any data quality issues and outstanding ECE returns.

If you have any questions, please email ece.statistics@education.govt.nz.
