14NOV16 We are continuing to receive information from the Ministry of Education regarding the Earthquake last night. Currently they have advised that for area's from North Canterbury to Wellington Early Childhood services need to check that property is safe. As families have children in their own homes, this is up to the family to check and feel comfortable that care can be provided for.
If a family home is safe, and it is practical for their nanny to work then care can happen as per normal. Some questions often arise around do I need to come to work. The Press had a good article explaining some issues around this a few years ago LINK. Main point, ensure you communicate to determine the best outcome for the family and nanny.
We will be updating Educa with some more information for families.
Please call us if you have any questions 0800 444 118.
