I have identified a need for a home based service in a small rural community however all members of that community belong to the same family/whānau. Am I able to recruit an educator from that community given that the children that are likely to attend my service would be from the same family/whānau?

The Ministry of Education has allowed for exceptions to be considered in this situation where the whole community is family/whānau. A home based service may be able to claim funding for the children attending but you could not claim funding for the educator’s own children. You would need to get agreement from your local Ministry of Education office before proceeding.
