Managing a change of SMS, ownership or service closure

Early learning service providers need to ensure that they inform the Ministry of Education of any change in the way they operate that affects the management of Early Learning Information (ELI) data. This includes: 

  • Change of ownership;
  • Change of student management system (SMS);
  • Change of ownership and SMS; or
  • Service closure.

 Managing these changes correctly is important in providing the Ministry with up-to-date enrolment and attendance information, which is a requirement in the ELI Principles of Use.


Please refer to the 23 October 2015 Latest News for instructions on the action required for each change situation.


Not ensuring these actions are taken could potentially impact your ability to submit data to the Ministry.
