Discoveries Educare started this petition to Isabel Evans - Secretary (Ministry of Education)

REQUEST TO MINISTRY OF EDUCATION TO STOP THE HIGHLAND PARK CENTRE CLOSURE ON AUGUST 19th 2020. 

STOP PARENTS & CHILDREN BEING AFFECTED BY THIS SUDDEN CLOSURE!

Reasoning:   All Discoveries Educare Centres have been purchased by another childcare provider. They have submitted applications to the MOE for all probationary licenses.  MOE have control over how long the application process takes and whether licences are issued or declined.

We request that centres remain open and operational until the new owner takes over the centres.  This is necessary as:-

·      Parents need sufficient notice to find a suitable alternative childcare for their child/ren.  14 days is not a sufficient amount of notice.

·      Parents want their child/ren to remain with familiar staff and friends and in their regular centre.

·      Children need to have a sense of belonging within their current environment

·      Parents do not need the additional stress relevant to settling and transitioning of their child/ren into a new centre

·      Employees need job security for their own families and livelihoods

·      Staff and Whanau relationships should remain strong

·      Parents are not burdened with the increase cost of fees from alternative centres.

·      For most families the centre is the child’s second home.
