In January 2018, the Ministry will be seeking proposals from credible providers who have the capability, experience and infrastructure to deliver projects that will establish or expand early childhood education services, which align with the objective of TAP3 funding.
The Ministry will be providing grant assistance through the TAP3 programme to contribute to establishing new services or expanding existing services, with the intention of increasing licensed or certificated child places in target communities within the Bay of Plenty / Waiariki region.
