The Ministry is seeking to increase participation in quality Early Childhood Education (ECE).
The objective of TAP partial funding (TAP 2) grants is to contribute towards establishing quality new services or expanding quality existing services, with the intention of creating new licensed or certificated child places in priority areas across New Zealand. This RFP is for priority areas in Auckland.
The Ministry of Education is seeking organisations to establish new child places in quality ECE and increase participation of children/tamariki from Māori, Pacific, and low socio-economic status families/whānau in identified priority areas.
TAP 2 funding will provide a contribution towards establishing new child places in communities where they are needed most. The maximum payable grant will be $12,000 per new child place or 50 percent of total project costs, whichever is the lesser of the two.
