Disappointment from Auckland early childhood centres they weren't consulted about phase one of the region's road map out of Covid-19 restrictions. 

They'll be able to open to all children from tomorrow, not just those of essential workers. 

However, there'll still be bubbles of 10, and infection control processes. 

Early Childhood Council acting CEO, Sue Kurtovich, told Tim Dower families are calling to get spaces but most centres are already at capacity. 

"It’s rather unfortunate that the sector was not involved at all in this announcement, or having any discussion about it."
