A seed sown in Rangiātea will never be lost.

This project has now finished. Please go to Te Whāriki Online to access the resources and material from the programme, including the introductory workshop videos, webinar series and stories of practice.

Early learning services are no longer able to enrol in the PLD that was provided by CORE Education. The Ministry of Education will be continuing to steward Te Whāriki through the Strengthening Early Learning Opportunities (SELO) contracts. Further information is available on the Ministry of Education website.

Te Whāriki 2017 - 2018 Webinars | Ngā Kauhaurangi

A series of 10 webinars were developed to support understandings of Te Whāriki 2017. Each one-hour webinar explores a different aspect of Te Whāriki.

These are intended to support services to weave their own curriculum design as they engage in critical inquiry around Te Whāriki 2017.

Te Whāriki webinar recordings

Recordings of each webinar are now available and can be viewed individually or as a team at a time that best suits.
