Auckland weather event: state of emergency


Emergency closures

Normal settings apply for emergency closures due to the effects of Auckland weather event/state of emergency on 10 May. Services need to contact their local Te Mahau office and these will be assessed on a service-by-service basis.

Absence funding

Normal absences rules apply. Early learning services may claim absence funding for children not in attendance if the service is open as normal.

Services should mark the child as absent, and funding will be claimed for the booked hours of permanently enrolled children who are marked as absent.

Funding may not be claimed for casually enrolled children who do not attend.
