Ministers Forum Raising Educational Achievement

The President of the New Zealand Homebased Early Childhood Education Association, Carol Stovold, has been involved in the Ministerial Cross Sector Forum Group on raising educational achievement since her appointment in June 2012. Carol recently reported back to ECAC and the board of the Association on the work of the Forum and the different work streams she is involved with. The individual groups are meeting regularly for further discussion and are making progress on their programmes of work.

Carol is co-chairing the Vulnerable Children work stream and is also attending and contributing to Continuity of Early Learning, Transitions and Interfaces, Clusters and Leadership and Quality Teaching work streams. Further information about the Ministers Forum can be found at
