ERO reviews early childhood services and ngā kōhanga reo on average every three years. ERO reports on the education and care provided for the children in each individual service. Review reports go to the service’s management, and are published on ERO’s website so parents and others can read them.
Is your service having a review?
Our regional offices will send you detailed information before your review. Most of the documents are also available on this website so that you know what to expect and can download additional copies if required. Please contact your local ERO office if you have any queries, comments or advice.
During reviews ERO also collects information on national education topics. This is aggregated and analysed so it can be published in a national report, which is then published on ERO’s website.
Early Childhood Services
Ngā Kōhanga Reo
ERO reports are designed to make it easier for services to see what they are doing well, where they need to improve and what they could do next.Self review is a key component of each review. ERO’s Approach to Reviews in Early Childhood Services explains the review process.* Review material is available in hard copy from firstname.lastname@example.org, or on this website.
Ngā kōhanga reo are reviewed by Te Uepū ā-Motu, ERO’s Māori Review Services team. ERO has worked with Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust to develop a special review process that reflects the philosophy of kōhanga reo, and special review material is available. Hard copies are available from email@example.com. ERO reports on ngā kōhanga reo are written in te reo Māori and in English.
* Home-based and hospital-based education and care services will continue to be reviewed under the 2002 Framework and Resources for Early Childhood Education Reviews
