The Asia New Zealand Foundation is launching its latest report on how children of Asian ethnicity under five years old are leading the changing demographic of New Zealand.

One in five kids (under five) in NZ is of Asian descent. Nine out of 10 of those are born in New Zealand.

This group brings a wealth of languages, cultures and traditions to our communities and pre-schools. What are the implications for the role of parents, communities and early childhood education? What are the opportunities and challenges for enhancing social cohesion and the skill sets of our future workforce in a globalised world?

We’re going to launch this report on Wednesday 8 November in Wellington with a panel discussion of experts, including representatives from the Ministry of Education and the Early Childhood Council.  We also welcome input from the audience during a Q&A session.

If you or any of your friends/colleagues are interested, please RSVP to James To jto@asianz.org.nz.
