“Kindergarten associations and NZK play a large role in the high quality early childhood education that is provided in kindergartens. Over the past few years, kindergartens have changed and are continually changing to meet community needs” says Janice Bromell. “In order to support and strengthen local kindergarten networks it is imperative that there is a committed and professional board operating at the national level” Janice Bromell says.
