Te Whᾱriki - Curriculum Update
Te Whᾱriki, the early childhood curriculum has been updated and the new version is available on line.
Here’s the link: http://tewhariki.tki.org.nz/.
The new version has been welcomed by the sector. Clare Wells from New Zealand Kindergartens (NZK) says while the Te Whᾱriki framework remained robust, it was time to review the document to take account of changes over the past 20 years.
“Te Whᾱriki holds a special place in our education system” says Clare. “It reflects our bicultural heritage, placing children and their whᾱnau at the heart.”
Free professional development is being offered by the Ministry to support the introduction of the new document.
Whᾱnau Manaaki Kindergartens is considering how best to take advantage of the PD and more details will be in a future Kōrero.
