Children (Education and Care Services) Supplementary Provisions Act 2011 No 70
33 Parental contact with children
(1) The service approval of an approved provider for a State regulated
education and care service is granted subject to a condition that the approved
provider must afford any parent contact with his or her child at any time that
the service is being provided to the child.
(2) However, an approved provider of a State regulated education and
care service may deny a parent contact with his or her child (until the
parent’s right to contact has been established):
(a) if the approved provider has reason to believe that a court has
denied the parent that contact, or
(b) if the approved provider is requested to do so by the
Director-General, an officer of the Ministry of Health, a police officer, or
any other appropriate authority.
(3) This section applies to a supervisor certificate granted under the
National Law Alignment Provisions in the same way as it applies to a service
approval. For that purpose, a reference to an approved provider for a State
regulated education and care service includes a reference to a nominated
supervisor for a State regulated education and care service within the meaning
of the National Law Alignment Provisions.
