The history of kiwi men's participation in paid early childcare and teaching work has not been documented to date. But what can be learned from the New Zealand experience may be helpful internationally in the movement towards greater male representation in early years work. This paper provides a brief recent history only, highlighting issues that may be specific to New Zealand's cultural and political context as well as those likely to be generic to men's experiences within any Western country.
