We’ll make sure all Kiwi kids get the best start in life. Our policies will give parents more time to be parents and will empower young people to succeed at school and out in our communities.
We’ll extend Paid Parental Leave to 26 weeks.
We'll increase free early childhood education to 25 hours a week and extend it even further for the vulnerable. And we'll restore funding for 100% qualified teaching staff in ECEs.
We'll ensure there are more Plunket visits for families that need them most.
And to leave more money in your pocket to pay the monthly bills, Labour’s NZ Power policy will reduce your power bill by preventing power companies from overcharging.
