You won't find our unique Te Whaariki resources anywhere else, download and print directly from our website, The feedback form teachers for these resources has been outstanding..
Based on Te Whâriki (1996) each outlining the learning objectives for a specific area of play. Great for parent education and teacher quick reference while setting learning objectives during programme planning or writing up children's profiles. They include the title in English & Te Reo Mâori, the learning objective and the specific links to The New Zealand Early Childhood Curriculum (1996) Te Whaariki.
Unlike most curriculum resources these come from the 'opposite end' so that you can link learning objective and goals into the areas of play. Providing a very useful tool when writing antidotes in children profiles, reassuring parents whose child plays in a particular are for large amounts of time - that their child really is learning a lot more than they realize.
I've had an enormous amount of feedback at conferences from teachers about the multiple ways this resources is being used in their early childhood centre. This is a very practical resource that I wish I'd had time to make while I was teaching. While the development has been hard work I thoroughly enjoy the 99.9% positive response.
