I'm a freelance writer and I'm writing an article about non-qualified ece teachers and what they can bring to an ece centre, home based care, kindy etc. I'm looking for comments from parents and ece teachers or centre owners as to whether they think non-qualified staff can make a contribution to an ece centre/home based care, or whether all staff should be qualified.
You don't have to be named but if you are willing some brief (not too identifying) details about yourself would be helpful. Eg, I own an ece centre in the South Island, or I'm a parent of a 4 year old attending home based care.
The article will be published on a website called ChildForum (www.childforum.com), with the exact date to be scheduled.
I would appreciate replies before the 15th December 2010.
Thanks in advance
