Participation in early childhood education

In each primary school ERO asked what the school knew about Pacific students’ early childhood education (ECE) attendance.

Fourteen percent of the 173 primary schools said that all their Pacific students had attended ECE. In a further 30 percent of schools most Pacific students had participated in ECE, and 18 percent of schools reported that some had. In three schools no Pacific students had attended ECE. There was no information about this in the remaining 32 percent of primary schools.
