Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa

A special welcome to you all, and those who have travelled across our land from all around New Zealand.

So one year on – what has changed.  This time last year when we met in Whanganui, we left with a sense of purpose and some ideas of where we as an organisation were headed. We had a great time networking, sharing ideas and some great connections were made.

In June 2013 ChildForum wrote to the NZ Education Minister explaining why it is important for children, the ECE profession, and our society for men to be represented in early childhood teaching work and asking if she had been advised of the continuing problem and what actions Government may be planning to put into place to address this.

All around Aotearoa men are making huge differences in the lives of very young children.
       
EC-MENz is New Zealand’s only national organization dedicated solely to supporting the many roles of men in early childhood education.
