The request was partially successful.

From: james lochead-macmillan

Dear State Services Commission,

Good morning, I writing to ask that despite Kindergarten not being run by the Ministry of education and I can't find any trace of Kindergarten on your list of State sector employees " Central Government Agencies as at 12 December 2019".

Can I please request all documents held that are associated with the claim Kindergarten teachers, can be classified as State sector Employees?

Dear Mr Lochead-Macmillan

 

We have interpreted your question to be that you are enquiring whether
kindergarten teachers are classified as state sector employees.

 

Those working as a registered teacher in the employment of any free
kindergarten association that controls a free kindergarten within the
meaning of [1]section 120 of the Education Act 1989 is defined as part of
the Education Services.  This is outlined in section 2 of the State Sector
Act which can be found at the following link: 
[2]http://legislation.govt.nz/act/public/19....

 

If this doesn’t answer your request, please could you provide more
specific information regarding the documents you are after.

 

Kind regards

Dear SSC Enquiries,

Thankyou, but the sate services act which you directed me too appears misleading as the section you directed me to, directed me to Section 120 of the education act. which has been repealed. This is a little confusing and Teacher registration is actually required for all ECE services. So my question remains how are Kindergartens classed as a State sector Employer given the acts don't appear to line up.

Part 10
Teacher registration
[Repealed]
Part 10: repealed, on 1 July 2015, by section 6 of the Education Amendment Act 2015 (2015 No 1).
120 Interpretation
[Repealed]
Section 120: repealed, on 1 July 2015, by section 6 of the Education Amendment Act 2015 (2015 No 1).

Could I also ask if you have a definition of what a "Free Kindergarten Association" is?

Also given the different funding to Kindergarten associations, what would be required to set up a new Free Kindergarten Association?

Yours sincerely,

james lochead-macmillan
