The Education Review Office (ERO) is the New Zealand government department that evaluates and reports on the education and care of students in schools and early childhood education services.

It's important to make an informed decision when choosing the right childcare provider for your family. ERO reports help provide an external review of the quality of schools and childcare programmes, including home-based care.

At PORSE we confidently support what ERO says about our in-home childcare services, the PORSE programme and our Educators.

PORSE is a licensed early childhood education provider, which means we are regularly reviewed by ERO. All the PORSE ERO reports are available in full at www.ero.govt.nz.

The following is just some of the feedback from recent ERO Reports of PORSE:
