As part of the Special Needs Resourcing mandate, the County of Wellington's Enhanced Support System provides supports to ensure children with medical conditions, special needs and/or developmental delays are able to fully participate in Child Care programmes. It is based on the foundation that child care and early learning educators take the lead in meeting the needs of children in their programme and partnering with parents to monitor their child's development. It sees child care and early learning educators as skilled professionals who seek to build their capacity through ongoing professional learning and accessing resources that will support their programme to meet the needs of all children in a holistic manner.
