The Ministry is looking for providers to support kaiako across diverse early learning contexts to design and implement a rich curriculum that reflects “what matters here”, draws on the goals and learning outcomes to support children’s developing capabilities, and includes bi-cultural practices.
We are also interested in innovative solutions, and PLD that engages a range of services who may not have previously participated in PLD.
Te Whāriki (2017) is highly respected as an empowering curriculum framework for children from birth to start of schooling.
Between July 2017 and June 2018, early learning services were supported to implement Te Whāriki through a programme of PLD that included workshops, online resources and webinars. In this PLD, the ‘learning that matters here’ was one of five key shifts in practice we considered important to fully realise the intent of Te Whāriki. .
1. A rich curriculum for every child
2. A focus on learning that matters here (learning priorities)
3. Affirmation of identity, language and culture
4. Parents and whānau engaged in their child’s learning
5. Personalised pathways to school and kura.
